    Like the pose and the splashing water in the background. Looks nice and sharp.

    This is nice.
    I like the whites ( but would work a bit more on the whites of head and tail-unless you have already done this to the max) and that splash of water behind the egret.
    The rock are nice and create a nice diagonal line. That single toenail that is visible is kinda cool.
    How are you enjoying your 600 v3?

    Enjoying it very much Gail, although it is the first 600 I have had.
    Love the balance but am still nutting out the best BIF AF settings (I do have the guide by Arash).
    Compared with my previous 800mm combo of 400 2.8 plus 2x, AF is way snappier with the 600 plus 2x.
