I love the dreaminess of this shot. Great deep, dark tones and composition.

Jennifer, you are a master at lighting!

Amazing work in this shot, all to be said.

A beautiful piece of work.

There is something moving about the combination of water, a bird, and a reflection. I never get tired of that combination.

You kill me with your beautiful work. This is simply amazing. Great deep tones. I love dark photos and this certainly doesn't disappoint. The softness of the bird is just stunning.

Dang it!

I've come back and looked at this how many times now? LOL
Even wanted to visualize how it would looked framed.

Maybe I'm going to have to re-decorate my house so it will have a place.

How did I miss one before?
It's gorgeous, and was not selected just to make your 100th either.

This is great. I caught a Great White Egret(Heron?)the other day but this is much cooler. Nicely done.

I think I still owe you one more critique as your prize (not that I'll stop there): I'm going to make it this one.

Hits: This has an excellent feel to it. I like the choice to make it dark; the bird has a beautiful "glow". The bird and scene are captured with great clarity, and where there's light, the soft but pleasing colors work well.

Misses: I can't tell for sure if it's a night shot or a darkened day shot. If it's moonlight, which it does sort of look like, the viewer expects some more traces of it elsewhere, or at least a little more light on the surroundings. You might experiment with setting the levels just a little bit higher.

Overall: I really like this shot, and I'm surprised not to see a fancy L lens listed in the lens area, because the capture is terrific.

One other thing you might experiment with on this one: perhaps a crop to a square format, including only the lighter central twigs? Might look nice square!
