Hi Ricardo, What a gorgeous Heron! He looks like he should be in front of a palace or castle. Focus and colour is excellent. I love the colour of the water, it's a nice contrast to the heron. Janice

Colors and detail look good. A nice frame filling composition. This looks great to me.

What a lovely shot ! I like the simple and smart composition. I agree the workshop of Tomas for colors. I also appreciate the complementary note... Congratulations Ricardo and thanks for sharing.

Hi Ricardo,
Nice shot with good sharpness, detail, color, and DOF.
Slight exposure problems..perhaps less space behind the bird also...
Well done and TFS!

Hi Ricardo
Nice shot.Good composition and POV.
Well done


Hola Ricardo,
Preciosa foto de un pájaro tan blanco, que a veces hace perder todo los detalles. La composición y detalles son muy buenos, tal vez algo centrada. El acercamiento es para elogiar; yo estoy intentando tomar una buena en la laguna de mi pueblo pero no estan lo suficientemente cerca para tomar una buena, apesar que uso lente de 300 mm.
Lo que nunca vi es ese verde sobre el pico.
En definitiva un buen trabajo, amigo.

Hi Ricardo,
Beautiful capture! Amazing colours and good details, well framing.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ricardo
This is an excellent image of this Great Egret or also called the White Heron. I especially fancy the way it seems to be in a deep pensive mood.
The composition is great and the colours are stunning. I have never seen before that the facial colour can actually display in green. The DOF is spot-on and it displays good details. The water surface forms an amazing BG that compliments and enhances the bird very well and the exposure was perfectly managed showing good contrast on the white feathers.
Very well done and TFS.

Hello Ricardo,
Very good shot of this bird! Picture has nice framing and great POV. I like colours too. The water looks pretty interesting.

You have fantastic butterflies Ricardo, but I really love egrets. This one is beautiful with the green skin near the beak like the grass. Excellent POV. Where did you find the info you have posted? I am having difficulties with birds ID.

Hi Ricardo,
Superb post, The green around the eyes is amazing, It looks similar to Large Egret.

Posição, ângulo, POV, tudo muito bom. Cores, contraste, textura. Composição ótima.

Hello Ricardo,
A majestic bird very well captured!
The composition is appealing, with good lines in the diagonal greenery to support the main subject...
Well done on the white feather coat, good details!
Pablo -

Greenie later! OK-

Hi Ricardo,
