Yes, I did go a little overboard with the saturation, but I liked the results, so I left it like that. Thanks to all for your votes and comments.

Looks orangey for a Great Blue Heron, but still lovely detail and pose.

Magnificent capture! I can almost feel the softness of this birds feathers. Nice exposure capturing the highlights in the water without blowing them out. Perhaps a tad weighted on the left with composition but nothing to knock major points off for. Good luck with this beautiful capture!

excellent focus and composition on this one. it does have a bit of an orangish cast and it is difficult to tell if that is on purpose or not.

Love it! Wonderful sharpness. There seems to be a brown color cast, though.

Beautiful shot. 8 (would be a 10 but I think you added too much warmth to the colours, the grey is almost rust colour in this) I am guessing this is Option. :)

good capture, but the colour seems unnatural and the tilt is kindof annoying...
