Were you using a flash? looks like the first two are a little blown out. I can't manage good exposure with fill flash consistently. You were able to get close to them those birds usually take off when I get close. Nice shots

No flash was used. They look blown out on here but on my computer I can see much more detail in the birds feathers. I just parked on the side of the road and shot these photos with a 70-200 L 2.8 IS .

Honest opinion?

#1....blown out and the Heron is looking away from the viewer.

#2...serious halo around the Egret and too hot..no detail in the whites. Head angle not ideal.

#3...there seems to be a color cast to it (blue or green)..maybe try to warm it up some.

Out of the three I like #3 the most.

This section of the forum is the photo sharing section and most are reluctant to offer critiques for fear of offending the OP.

My thoughts are if you're asking for advice don't take it personally and leave your emotions at the door. I also feel getting feedback is the best way to learn to photograph wildlife or post processing techniques.

My biggest problem is reading critiques of my images and not leaving my emotions at the door...I'm trying to get over this problem and I try to realize the person replying to a topic of mine is not attcking me or my image...they're just offering their own observation of what they see.

its great that you got this close to the birds but they are over exposed by quite a lot ,if you shot raw you may be able to get a bit back.

I agree with Duane and I too think the last one is the best of the bunch. Keep after it and use what you learn from critiques to improve. And most of all have fun.

Chuck
