    Hi Volkan, always have loved the black crowned heron, especially the eye.

    I believe that perhaps the eye just is not sharp on this one as some other parts but it could just be my perception.

    Otherwise, I think you have quite a bit of room to increase exposure as it feels fairly dark to my eyes and probably a bit of a green hue (some white balance correction).

    I think a little room for improvement but still a pretty cool flight shot!

    Good stuff by Brian, and your repost is a step in the right direction. Better white balance, but still a touch dark. Keep it up!

    A nice effort. That red eye really sucks us in. So that's good.

    I agree the frame looks better with the exposure boosted.

    I'm surprised by the amount of noise on the underwing given this shot was taken at ISO 320.
