This Night Heron was first spotted by my wife at about 9am on 27-Jul-2013, after spotting a juvenile Night Heron roughly 1km in the north end of the park. We returned to the spot about an hour later only to find it in the same spot, perched on a tree by the Don River. Although it was a cloudy morning, over 20 shots were taken. This was the most unique pose, highlighting the blue top coat, the 2 head feathers, its long beak and orange eye.

Really well caught. You could afford to crop tighter round him? - Make it a portrait rather than landscape shot. This would concentrate our eye further on him, I think.

Welcome Sunny.


Im from Toronto, and Ive never known Night Herons were to be seen in the Don Valley. Ive taken some shots of these before, but in the Southern US.


Its a very nice well focused and sharp shot. Shutter speed was a little slow for the focal length, but youve got away with it with a pin sharp eye.

The composition may look better having the bird off centre, which Ive done in a mod. Its give the bird more space to look into on the left. Scroll up this page, and click the modifications tab, and view large.

The contrast is a little light, and its improved with a little more contrast. Ive also removed the branch curving over the bird.


Congratulations on getting this shot, - you should consider sending to one of the newspapers, - its an unusual sight.


Hope this is helpful,


Regards


Willie

Very well done. The slight flatness, and it is slight, is likely to be due to the ISO500, which was necessary to get the image. Tweak the contrast.

Better up the ISO and get it sharp than smooth and blurred any time.
