Dennis AKA Driver3 wanted to see what I took at the St Augustine Rookery, and because I value Y'alls opinions highly, I will post one here, others will be posted in the Wildlife section and the close up section as time permits.

very nice shot.

i think i'd try a little burn in on the white areas.. for white birds i usually try to take them with a -1--2 Ev compensation so the whites don't get burnt out.
just my 2ยข..

Awesome shot, love the detail. Whites look spot-on to me, not blown out at all.

An eye-pleasing photo!

Color, sharpness, bokeh and composition are outstanding! Any PP? Looks like the Sony is a keeper!

Nice Egret Terry! What I found with these is in pp you have to be gentle with the sharpening and you were. The whites are hairy edge but I think they're still there.
