    beautiful bird photos as always. I especially adore #1... that fish makes the photo special (#4, too)..

    Is there is something different...soft... about the feathers of the egret in the 2nd photo (beautiful composition) or maybe it is just me?

    Otavio,
    Very nice photos.
    The #1 is supreme. It seems a picture painted by a talented artist.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Antonio.

    #1 is one beautiful shot. #3 is also excellent. The fish and the band of grass add good interest to both shots.

    Hello, Christina. Thanks for viewing and commenting. I had to apply a heavy noise reduction on #3, I think that is way it looks a bit soft. Kindest regards!

    Hi Antônio.

    Thanks, but surely my job was a lot easier (and, thus, have A LOT LESS merit) than painting such a screen!

    I'm glad you liked it though. Cheers...

    Thanks, Bobo. I appreciate your feedback. I was not sure if the band of grass would work (actually I almost started cloning it out!). Regards,

    This egret was part under a shadow, part under the sunlight, what makes this shot/PP, in my opinion, and considering my limited level of PP, very dificult. If I had asked her to move a bit to the sunlight (or back into the shadow), maybe the shot would be better!
