The background could do with being a bit darker for my liking too, but that's some vibrant colour there! The composition works well for me though. Nice & tidy.

Lovely colour. I feel that the background needed to be a bit more black to make the pink stand out even more.

They always make me laugh with their slow ponderous take offs.... Giving the subject a bit of space to fly into has worked well with the composition.

Nice wing blur, shame the head is not sharp but still a good shot.

Nice capture could be sharper but still works with the motion of the bird

Well captured and it does have a sense of movement. They always make me smile as I used to work for a Japanese company and often heard my name pronounced as "Heron" :D

Nice subject but the fact its not in focus i find really distracting. If it were only the wings blurred that would be acceptable. Great effort though.

It's well caught and you must have been close to be able to use an effective 64mm (full frame equivalent).
I quite like the bit of blur in the wings.

Nice and close shot with the Heron just such a shame the body isn't in focus as the wing blur is quite effective but it can't be an easy shot to pull off.

How fab to get so close! It's a shame the head isn't pin sharp, but I love the movement you've captured in the wings - makes you feel you're there. I always feel privileged if I get that close to a bird.

Thank you Bebop, rob & Simon
Not the easiest camera to focus on a birds head, not knowing when it was going to fly off.

Thank you Ian

Thank you Dave
Sharpness is overrated! Good shot!
Thanks Paul.
Certainly captured the movement there :)
Thanks Tim

Thanks Allan
You do have to be quick don’t you, I think you’ve done well and captured the sense of motion, a super shot.
Thank you susie

I was surprised I got that close, they are very skittish birds.

Thank you all for taking your time to comment

Liking the first one Pete, nice textures in that one but both good enough.

Not the biggest fan of train shots but for the theme of numbers I think it works the numbers do stand out although quite small.

your link is not working by the way

It's a nice composition with space for the train to rush into. The numbers are a tad small for me also, but they're there, so that's the theme hit!

I sort of agree with the others, but no one said that the numbers needed to be big. The train is nicely placed.
