    Interesting treatment of the light..soft, but retaining good detail. Nice work, James.

    I too very much like the processing you have applied here. I wish there was a slight more side view of the Herons face but...very well done.

    Thanks all, I had a couple similar shots and went different ways with them . Most processing was done in raw, increased shadows. Then in elements ran slight noise reduction Ithink about 22% that softened it a little. I am including another that I did similar, birds head side profiled tighter crop but I felt better about the 1st one.Down by the Grotto C&C welcomed

    My thoughts about the first one, James, were that a little crop might help. And something which 'moved' the bird slightly to the left.

    I'm not totally sure that I would have gone quite as tight as your second image though. A little bit of the background seems to put the shot into better perspective.

    Probably another case of making several different crops then deciding between them.
