I always find reflections difficult to present compositionally.
Do you concentrate on the reflection or the reality in a "Rule of Thirds" presentation or go for symmetry with a middle split?
No matter which you choose, you will lose out on something.
I think you have chosen well here with the Heron occupying it`s optimum position in a rule of thirds composition.
Clean and sharp, good contrast and very well captured.
Good luck.

Good water shot. I do like the coloured leaves in the reflection, it compliments the picture very well.

Very pretty. The snowy egret makes the shot and grounds it. I love the cool and warm tones of the grasses and trees. The reflection is beautiful. Did you adjust curves? It might deepen the tones even further. Something fun to try.
