Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

Stellar in black and white.. the water is nearly full on black short of reflectons.

Turnbill from Maine, United States

Nicely done - your shutter speed is just slow enough to give the water some movement while keeping the heron sharp.

Great Shot!..
