Hi Murray

Good graphism, with excellent exposure on the highlights, & superb placement of the heron, within the frame. Tfs!

Bom dia Murray,
Great shot, splendiferous FP, very well focused. Great lights,
Great one,

Wow ... a white heron! We have blue herons around here occasionally, but I've never seen a white one.
Great capture. Love your comp with the dead tree limb and its reflection. Looks like a little OE on the bird. At first I was thinking you could have cropped up higher from the bottom, but then saw the heron's reflection, and realized why you didn't.
Nice job

hello Murray,
What an elegant and excellent composition. I like the detail of the feathers and reflection in the water.
As I only have a point and shoot I can never get close enough for a good shot. You have taken one for me!!
Have a good WE. Joni
Darn, I have used up all my critiques for today.

Hi Murray,
Great capture of this heron with the reflection on the water.
Nice composition.


Hi, Murray,
great shot of this white heron. I LOVE bird photos and you got a nice one here. The vertical framing is perfect and the branch it's standing on looks almost 3D. Excellent detail, nice cropping and the reflection is awesome. That's beautiful. Many thanks and warm regards,

Hi Murray,
Excellent spotting, such a majestic looking bird. Great PP work over the original. There's a place around the corner from me called 'Heron Point', I really must go there for some photos some time. The reflection on the water is good bonus here, clever thinking with the compo too. To be picky, I may have decreased the levels on it's back a bit as it's getting close to being OE, but still works well as it is.


Hello Murray,

Excellent shot of this white heron.
Very good composition, great clarity, lightness and of course reflection on the water.

Best regards,

Hi Murray:
Great shadow shot with super details on the whites...
Good framing for the post too:)

One of the finest shots I've seen in your gallery Murray, this is great. Perfectly composed, good exposure, good DOF, good sharpness on subject, and a nice detail that you've captured the reflection in its entirety.

What a great capture. Very artistic composition. Beautiful. TFS


Hello Murray,
Your composition and positioning of the heron is exact and classic. I must confess that I played with this image yesterday and tried on different WS, mainly for my benefit - including b&w conversion, spiking contrast and exposure, etc. In the end, the versions were not improvements over your original. This is a lovely posting. Best regards.

  • Great

Hi Murray,
Good shot with nice
reflection. The white shade
on the fallen branch adds a
lovely detail.
