This is quite an interesting effect used here. :)
a very good composition and subject. I think the exposure is just right.

what a wonderful and interesting portrait, arjuna! :-)
perfectly sharp with beautiful soft lighting, terrific dark
and blurred bg and awesome details -
it does seem that the crossed beak disturbs him.
well seen & captured, thorsten.

Wonderful capture of the heron. I love the BG it really sets him off. Good POV and sharp details
I like the work you did on this nice and sharp photo. Could you please share with us how you did it?
I saw a blue crane with a similiar beak problem. I wonder if it is common with birds in captivity. Any out there who can enlighten us?

Fantastic first post, great POV and a lovely composition that look like a oil painting, nice details and beautiful colours with a great dark BG that nicely compiments the image.
I have just read your reply to Willem, it would be great if you could edit your notes to add this info as it would be a great help to all us beginners.
TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Arjuna, splendid shot of this Heron with a crossed beak!! It's an Heron with a stammer!! Exposure and colors are great, the framing too. Congratulations, Didier.

I like how you have obtained the photo, with the heron being confused in its inferior part with the dark bottom.
An excellent composition.
