eaa: Fantastic! What a light, and the lovely complimentary colors really adds to the mood. Is this all natural lighting, or is there any flash involved (ref. the reflection in the eye)? Anyway, one of the best heron pics I've ever seen :)
Thank you, appreciate the comment very much. There is "Fill Flash" involved here with most impact on the right side of the picture. This was during Sunset.
Jim Salvas: This was my choice for first, because it's a good photo and not just a photo of a bird. Congratulations on taking it.
Appreciate the feedback. I am actually not sure how the scoring worked here? Looks like this image got a lot more votes than the images that ranked higher, and that might have hurt the average?
