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