    Congratulations on 5th place, ysal. Beautiful shot. I love all those silhouetted conifer needles and the pose of the bird is so perfect.

    Thank you for all the nice comments!

SteveBee - I actually don't know how to focus on one spot and meter off of something else. I need to study up on that.

    I'm glad the Egret is not a 'perfect' silhouette, no sense spoiling a great shot just to meet some trivial rule. I'll take the foliage as the silhouette and the Egret as a partial one that makes the photo special. In my top three.

    Beautifully composed. The Heron is such an identifiable silhouette. The wispy clouds add a nice softness.

    Several others have done what you did here -- use a high ISO and super short exposure time. As a result you get a dull, lifeless sky. You really want to use the base ISO and they expose for the sky. You can always darken the shadow tones where you don't care about color.

    Very nice. Well composed. High in my favorites.

    Very well done - some might quarrel that this is not a true silhouette because one can see some detail; however, I am much more lenient in my interpretation.

    Very nice silhouette, in my top five... Did you consider cropping off some of the left to help balance the image?

    Like the contrast of the vertical bird and diagonal cloud lines, as well as the dark and light. Might be even better with the lower third of the shrubbery cropped off.

    Lovely, crisp and uncluttered silhouette, nicely situated in the frame. I like the wispy clouds. In my faves.
