    Default Great Blue Heron

    I captured this image at Parrish Park in Titusville, Florida. After crossing the bridge on the road to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge I always glance to the left to see if any birds are in the water of the bay in Parrish Park. Only this time have I seen the waters this calm. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    I really like this wide view. The lighting is great, and the blues are really pretty. That said, I think you're caught between two shots here. I would have either tried to get 1) closer for a tighter vertical of the bird and reflection or 2) lower (at the same distance) to exaggerate the sense of space around the subject. The image is really pretty, but I think either alternative would have yielded a show-stopping image.

    Hi Joe. I do like the image, but my first thought was "too much empty space", so I do have to agree with Dorian here. I love the overall colours, detail, reflection. TFS
