Great image Scott! Nice separation and framing.

One suggestion - I find my eye drawn to the light foliage at right, based on a suggestion I read: stare at the center of of an image and note distracting areas. Not an absolute but for me applies in this case.

Regards,

Bob

Like the other egrets, I'd suggest selecting the bird to bump the mid-tones ad do a curves or gamma adjustment and some dodging and a add some vignette for more visual snap because the original light wasn't especially snappy.

Thanks Bob.
I had some of the same concerns, then decided the image would be pretty spare without some background lighting, consoling myself that at least the brighter leaves point towards the bird. Might have been a better position from which to shoot, although I dont recall.


Karen,
I confess. I have been hearing voices. Or at least, voice. Yours. My touch may be too gentle, but I have been bumping mid-tones prior to posting. I am thinking that somewhere between my post and your re-work might provide the right balance of added pop and natural light.

Scott,

The repost looks a bit too bright on my monitor. Maybe 1/10 of a stop brighter on your original would work better.

100mm? I'm birding in the wrong spot!!!
