#1 han b.: Doesn't make sense if everything about picture is okay and your ratings are the lowest!
I hope you will start using full voting rates (from 7.7 to 9.3), soon.
#3 Yosi Helmann: YOU have to tell me, what you are missing. Otherwise I don't know what you talking about.

Thanks for comments.

Great portrait of this bird, very sharp focus, great details, good separation from bg. Stunning work!

A very good shot Rafal. Very good sharpness and ditto seperation from the bg

Great bird's portrait. Yesterday shot had well defined and interesting space around the raccoon. This picture impresses with details.

Nice. There could be more detail in feathers other than the plumes. Colour balance is much better, but I think the bird is a bit "crowded". If there was a bit more room behind and below, and more room to the left for the heron to "look into", there would be a better balance in the shot.

Think that discussion about your way of rating pictures is connected with some misunderstanding. It seems that you are not aware of the fact that here score 7.7 or 7.8 does not mean "good" or "great" picture but in the case of good picture taken by an experienced photographer, it is read as a critique of the picture.
It is really great to see here your interesting photography but I think that we all should use the same language of rating.

#8 TW_Bda(Tim White): Yes, you are right about sharpening brash on the feathers. I have just tiny-bit space on the bottom and little-bit more on the top. Thanks!

this would be perfect if you sharpened more and added more virtual bottom...still nice catch
