Another great photo from you, Tom! Hard (sharp sunshine) but very well handled exposure and as always very good sharpness.
Best regards/Bengt Falke

A well composed shot. The POV, sharpness and BG all make a great pic. To be very critical, the white is maybe a little OE'd but I do appreciate the difficulty as I have had the same problems in the past. I posted one of a Grey Heron a while back. Take a look and let me know what you think of mine!

i like how this heron is bathing his feet!;-)
you did handle very well with the colors of the sea and of the bird and with the light and you got a very good result with the white tones!beautiful panel of whites and greys!!!!i like it!!!and i like this simple composition,that stands very well to this bird,yes as you said it diffrent from what we are used to see!when i look at it for the second time i notice how outstanding you got the right focus and exposure on this whole bird,from head to body.
Great capture! Not only the color of the sea seems to be different - the Heron's color, too! He seems to be much lighter than it's European brethren! He's almost white. Is that the light or is he actually like that?

Hi Tom ,
Nice shot Tom! Well balanced frame, light and fresh colours, may be little bit overexposed image but I like it that way!
