Egrets coming in to land on top of a pine tree at dusk. They were in a perfect position for getting a silhouette and I exposed the shot to highlight this. Any comments welcome and thanks for viewing...

A lovely moment you have caught in this beautiful hence artistic work, Dilshan!
I like the golden hour you have got here, and the silhouette of the tree adds a magical touch to the whole work.
The flying Egrets adds great mood into the shot and gves the picture a classical look.
Well captured!

Have a nice weekend.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Dilshan...I like the sillouetting..very sharp focus on the birds. I think a close up of one or two of the birds would work well...I am not sure the tree adds much to the shot.
