Heron spotted on the Basingstoke Canal near Fleet in Hampshire yesterday. Any C&C Welcome.

Very nice, well spotted and they seem nice and sharp.

Hoewever, I think you're using average or evaluative metering, which is trying to expose the branches behind the heron properly and blowing some of the brighter highlights in the feathers.

Perhaps if you'd used partial or spot metering and locked on the bird itself you might have saved a lot more detail, though probably got a much darker background. However, the subject is the heron and so the dark brackground would probably only help.

Just my $0.02
