Hi Tasos,

Congratulations for new camera! It started very well. Great catch of moment with fine details.



You captured a great moment here. Nice quick camera work. I am curious as to the lack of color saturation. At first I thought this was a B & W image. I did a quick workshop to boost the color. There was a bit of color hiding in the image.

TFS and congratulations on your new equipment. That is a great lens.

Evelynn : )

Hi Tasos,
this is a fine looking capture of the heron you offer today.It looks like you had a dull sky to work with,however the exposure came out looking very good indeed.I like the colour and the details you have captured.I like your photo and Evelynn's workshop version as well.Thanks for sharing this interesting photo.The little fish is a nice catch for you and the bird. Bob

Hi Tasos,

I like very much your photo with the heron. This color combination of the white heron and the grey water from behind looks great. Excelent sharp image with good edtails. It is astonishing to see the fish deep inside bird's beak.

Thank you for sharing,
