Good shot Betty!!! Love the reflixions!!!

Very beautiful, clean and simple, and gorgeous light. Leaving such a large amount of uncluttered background gives this a very "fine arts" feel. Beautiful!

Excellent color and detail! Good job!
4 Kim Adams (Let's go Cardinals! )   (1/24/2002 7:53:58 AM)
What a perfect color palette. This is beautiful and peaceful. I feel like I am there.

Man... this is outstanding! How did you get the beautiful tone?
6 ChrisC (Christopher Cove)   (1/24/2002 8:30:41 AM)

Absolutely perfect! A stunning image. The mood is palpable. 10

I have looked at your work for some time now and I can't find anything to critique. This is perhaps the best wildlife photograph submitted to Photoblink in a long time. I think what strikes me about the work is that it combines both a splendid capture of the bird with the wonderful rich colors that I often see when photographing in the mornings. You have managed to bring together the great beauty of God's creation into one work and the result is simply stunning. Bill (10)

28 SharonS   (1/24/2002 7:06:15 PM)
The golden background combined with the reddish bird makes for an awesome combination. This is a real wall hanger!
29 CherylB (I only lie when I do not like your pic)   (1/24/2002 7:21:47 PM)
No filters or playing with white balance? I love the color. I had a morning with this glow but would love to capture it more often. The little reflection is super. Love it!

As said, nothing to critique......only a phrase of admiration for such a fine piece of work. I love everything about this shot!! So well composed and the colors!!!!! I love this!!
40 rqrobinson   (1/25/2002 4:46:27 PM)
Betty, I wish I could vote. This would get a 10 from me. This is the kind of shot everyone wishes they could pull off. As a wise person once said..."Photography is all about light" and this one has great light. You did a beatuiful job with the frame too.
41 Darwin   (1/25/2002 5:08:01 PM)
I can't add anything except my vote. This is wonderful! 9.0
42 owlz (Donna Eaton)   (1/25/2002 5:14:57 PM)
This is outstanding Betty. Such a beautiful work of art! I would love to have this hanging in my home.
43 Ben Horne   (1/25/2002 5:25:13 PM)
Awesome shot! I love the simplicity, and the color. It reminds me of Japanese artwork. Composition is top notch -- My only suggestion would be to move the bird a hair to the right. It's excellent as is though. How did you go about metering this scene? This is definantly one of my favorite shots of yours, and it makes an excellent POTD.
44 ram617 (ralph mosley)   (1/25/2002 5:46:42 PM)
i noticed that this image got a top ten award. deservingly so.
45 BGussy (Beverly GUstafson)   (1/25/2002 9:12:53 PM)

56 Peder   (1/27/2002 5:05:57 PM)
Superb! Lovely colors, and perfect framing.
57 Palm-Harbor   (1/27/2002 11:12:31 PM)
Betty, this is a wonderful study in simplicity - exactly what makes a great wildlife photo! The plain background combined with the slight reflection to lead the eye right to the egret is perfect! Great job!
58 Jackle (Cory Poole)   (1/28/2002 3:11:15 AM)
Nice and clean...........
59 Ivan (Ivan Miksik)   (1/28/2002 8:14:04 AM)
Nice colours! It's a wonderful image.
60 Betsy   (1/30/2002 7:26:12 PM)
Betty, just wanted to say that I just went through your collection and all of your images are excellent, but this is my FAVORITE!!!! The waters look like a pool of gold, and I love the placement of the bird in the composition ... I'd love to dive in with him. This is brilliant! P.S. Love the "Baby Gator" picture too. Ouch a little too close for comfort for me, but a great shot too enjoy looking at!
