There seems to be a slight blue cast to this, but other than that, this is a fantastic photo, especially with the water dropping from the catch. I love the details in the eye, the coloring, I mean. Excellent composition. My only nit is the color cast - sadly, I am not good at removing those! An awesome image just the same. And by the way, awesome notes!

Hi Lindsay , really good action shot here , lovely natural colors , nice detail and composition too. I like the water drops , something about them always holds my attention , sort of waiting for them to fall.



Hi Lindsay,

Really nice capture of the fishing Egret, I love the frozen moment you have captured here, right down to the droplets of water, excellent exposure in the white, really nice work.

Cheers Rick :)

Great shot. Excellent sharpness and you have captured a very beautiful time, with ripples in the water and water droplets falling from the egret's beak. It seems to be a little underexposed, but otherwise it is a superb shot!
