Hi Jim,

G'morning to ya' Tejas Jim! Another great classic shot. Yet in this one the water helps make the picture a whole, rather than a background. Beautiful portrait. Very well done Jim. I'll buy ya a burger and a cup of Joe if I ever go see my son in Atoka, Oklahoma..

Hi Jim,
Splendid shot of this Heron. Nice moment captured with impressive sharpness and nice colours. The rippled blue waters as BG looks fantastic and it somehow gives a 3-D effect. Great POV to portray this elegant pose. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Jim, great shot of the well posed Heron, good neck curve. It is nice to see the markings on the underside of the neck. Nicely captured with good pov.

Hi Jim,
I like most the natural looking color and exposure level here. Nice detail and DOF, with the color of the water a great BG for this Blue Heron. Perhaps a bit less space behind the subject IMHO.
Well done,

Hi Jim,
Good POV and profile view of this heron. I like the natural setting and the eye contact. It is matter of preference, but for me, colors are oversaturated. Some good detail on plummage and nice exposure of the white parts of heron.

Hi Jim,

A beautiful heron. The colors and details of his plummage and face are wonderful. I love his pose. The water is amazing with those nice ripples and beautiful blue.


Hello Jim,
what a wonderful Heron, and what a gorgeous background you gave him! He seems to go out from the sea, so neat and sharp.
A great composition, well done.
