Hi Jose,absolutely beautiful! Just a bit dark,but the position is fantastic,great capture of detail and colors of this grey heron,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Jose, I'm thrilled to have you as a neighbour on the gallery today, especially when you have returned here after a long break.
The Heron in your picture looks elegant in its stride. The dark BG highlights the bird illuminated by the ambient light. The focus is perfect and the details on the bird exceptionally clear.

Ciao Jose, great capture of lovely bird in nice waling pose, excellent sharpnness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Dr. Jose Diogo,
Great pose; and this image is ALMOST noiseless!!!
Great eye contact too.
Perhaps the exposure of f/8, 1/1250 could have benefitted this image.
It's a bit tooooo dark; the red mud flats, its hunting grounds, have become totally obscured 'cause of the 1/4000.
None the less this image deserves 2 points and a "smilie".
Mario from Canada with greetings.

Hello Jose,
Yes, a bit on the dark side but it has an artistic quality about it that a lighter image might not have had. Beautiful detail and a real pleasure to view.

Boa tarde Jose,
The light in the early morning is very beautiful. The light is exactly on the right places. Excellent sharpness, details and composition. Even the dark background is very beautiful.

Un poco oscura. Aún así se pueden ver los detalles.
Magnífica toma.


Hello Jose - Excellent Photograph of this Heron. Very good charming light, as well as sharpness. Thanks for sharing. Regards - Srikumar

Hello Jose,
I have been very busy lately and I haven't had time to comment on TN.
This photo is one of the best I have seen with this specie. Excellent details and focus.
