This is a good shot, well composed.

Its a pity the bird is flying the wrong way, secondly, the fact that you softeend the image losing the water line detracts as there is no reference point for the reflection


Magnifique image, très poétique. Le cadrage serré enlève tous les repèes habituels (ligne d'horizon notamment) et rend cet envol mystérieux, presque surnaturel. bravo.

mehraba Serkan,

very artistic photo. great!


good reflexe for a good reflect
aleks ;)



I think you have one of those shots that is an 'If only'. If only the heron (?) was flying towards you and if only the wind tip had touche dthe water on the right handside...

Nice shot though. The detail and the near perfect reflection work well together....


I think herons are smart enough not to touch the water. Furthermore the pattern there at the contact point would have disturb this nice circle shape.
I don't think neither that you loose the water line. Seems to me this effect comes from the use of a large telelens. I think that helps to give the supoernatural effect, which actually makes the pic even beter.
People always whish for even sharper details, but a very unic capture (as here) is of great value.
Your next challenges: a heron with a "1" shape, then a "2" shape, etc. (just kidding)
