hello jitti

what a shot it is....wow!!! very atractive colour with perfectly balanced light.very very differant pov too.seems to be this look like night heron.i have seen this kind of heron in the night.tfs


Hi Jitti
very heavily photoshoped, I like the compo and the colors very much but now it's more like a painting :-(

this is a phenomenal catch! They are so difficult to see in the daytime I know. And your display here is great as he's crouching through the branches. One day was taking pics of a heron and it wasn't until i was home i saw the bittern way over in the trees. So KUDOS my friend, really like this one!

You did well with the Sony, f5 worked, letting enough light even with the shutter so low. This gives it an artistic quality, like paint strokes. Can't wait to see more from you

Hello Jitti,
A fine capture of the Little Green or Striated Heron, taken prom a fine POV as it stalks through the cover of branches by the water. The composition is perfect and the heron shows well with fine sharpness and natural colours against the natural BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Jitti.
What a cute picture. I like a very beautiful heron and so impressive natural surroundings. Despite the bad light condition shot is sharp and colours are vivid. TFS.

Good natural setting, nice light catching the bird. Very good detail and nice pose.
