I'm interested in your reaction to these images. They have had a bit more processing than I usually give and it's a bit more "interpretative" than is my usual practice. They have more sharpening and noise reduction than usual and I have used PS to give a motion blur to the water in the backgrounds. In addition, the second one is a rather unusual head on perspective so you really have to look to see the birds head. I'm curious to see if folks here find them effective or just too much. Thanks for your opinions.

Here's a third one in the series. A bit more "normal" pose and a strip of Oklahoma's red clay on the lake shore in the background

I like them although I think they're a little over saturated.

I like saturation once in a while but prefer a more natural look most of the time. these are nice

well captured and processed. #1 is probably my favorite as the contrast of the egret against the water really gives impact. I'm ok with the saturation but feel like the vignetting on the first could be a bit more subtle. I don't think that was the look you were going for though and regardless, these are definitely winners.

A tad maybe but I like the lighting.
