The birds were still active and I had been photographing some wild geese when he landed just as I turned around.

Hi Neels

It's a shame that most viewers don't take the time to leave a comment. But it is what it is.
I have to be honest and say that I'm not that impressed. You used a focal length of 300mm and the bird is still small in the image. He must have been quite a distance away. I feel he needs to be bigger in the image and the aperture could have been wider to achieve a shallower depth of field. I do feel that the composition has made the most of the result.

Hi Neels, its just me but I think I would be tempted to clone out the wooden posts . I think it is just a little distracting with him being so far away. Fiona

Hi Neels,
It is a proud pose from the heron but I also feel your subject is too small and should it have been closer would have made a stronger impact, the fence posts are also distracting from the heron. The response from this site seems to be dwindling away, not what it used to be.

olá Neels,
It's really a shame when nature offers us a scene that we are not prepared to capture.
Then we see a lot of defects and tries to improve with photo editors.
I have learned that never works.
Anyway I did a quick WS corrrigindo things like POV, eliminating oversharpening with the instrument as stamp and could not enlarge the picture more using a frame
But as I said, is hopeless.

Indeed a lovely image of from a distance-beauty... we hope he doesn't catch a little baby bird well done NEELS GUNTER

Hello Neels,
I like this image, one could use another lens for more detail,
but this is as it was. Reminds me of how things where when I was a kid.
Best Wishes.
