[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I sometimes find a white heron, though I often stroll to Ueno Park in Tokyo downtown. It is very elegant different from other birds, though there are many Anas poecilorhyncha, Anas platyrhynchos, Anas acuta, and some Anas penelope, Anas clypeata etc., in this pond. It's always in the pond, yet this day it has reached the ground during one o'clock unusual.
I took this picture in the evening.

hello Mikio

beautiful composition, great light on the image with good details,
one think Mikio, and i don't want to be critical but i want
to be more useful in my critique, the bird is centered on the image,
i think it would be better if the bird was more at the left and
in front of the bird (where his looking) you should keep more place

Hi Mikio!

The white (and black) subject is always trick to expose.
You got is almost right, with just over exposed highlight at the neck/upper part of heron.
The focused to eye is sharp.

Yes, like Asbed said you should leave some space in front of the heron for it to look into.


Hi mikio,
excellent POV,colors and exposure,TFS
