    Congrats on your double #1 finishes! Beautiful night shot. I didn't know herons came out at night. Panachallenge is so educational!

    Congratulations on the well deserved double win. I think these are as good as any static bird photos I've ever seen.

    Beautiful subject and colours. Well composed for negative space. Everything must have held still!

    great lighting and incredible detail (the heron must have stood very still for a 1/5 second exposure!!), excellent contrast of textures and tones.

    Great shot. For this challenge, I do wish there was less of the piling and that the sliver detail on the piling was cloned out. They both detract attention form the main subject.

    Great shot and excellent use of negative space.

    Great capture, well-composed -- especially like how those wispy feathers stand out against the darkness. Maybe a bit lacking in sharpness.

    This is almost surreal. I really like the shades of blue deepening around the edges. It's a beautiful capture, though I feel as though the piling is a bit overwhelming and could have been cropped a bit.

    Suits to the topic. In my favorites.

    Nicely done with such low light! Think your pretty close to stunning, just needed the details in the bird crisp.

    Very Nice... my top pick... comment, the white circle is a bit distracting.

    Nicely exposed but I can't help but feel on the monitor size I am using that the subject is just too small in the frame (and the piling overpowers the subject just in the shear use of space it occupies in comparison. A fine photograph, nicely detailed with a nice eye and brilliant colours, this subject is just too tiny to me.

    Great photo with amazing sharpness especially given the low light. I like the way the dark blue negative space gets darker towards the edges.

    Wonderful shot, great colors and light. I would have liked the subject to be just a bit to the right, but it's very nice the way it is.
