Hi Hernan,
Nice shot, beautiful light in the early morning, and maybe because it was so cold the light is good. Great framing/composition and colours, nice detail. Interesting note too, a good post.

Hi Hernan, nice capture. Excellent colours, lighting and detail. Also good POV and well composed. TFS.

Hi Hernan,
A nice shot on this heron. The early morning light looks great. Nice colors and tone. Blue sky backround is perfect. Good detail in this.

Hi Hernan
The early morning light has rendered some lovely rich/warm colours on this shot. As I told you last time you are brave to be taking photos in that temperature. Maybe it is quite normal for you but I would be home watching a good DVD or play with my toes, but my camera will be well packed away. So, what I am saying is that I admire you guys for braving the elements under these kind of conditions, all in the name of photography.
Very well done with this nice capture of the heron. I like the tree-top composition, the colours are good, the details are sufficient, and you managed the exposure very well. TFS.

Nice picture Hernan! I really like your pov and composition. The sun light gives warm to the bird also! The amount of blue sky on your composition is perfect in my opinion! The exposition and focus cannot be better! Well done!
