    IMO not quite yet. The exposure is good now, but the sky has lot of "dirt speckles" on it, probably from too much sequential processing. Have you used Photoshop non-destructively? Otherwise I'd recommend starting all over again from the original. -- H005 14:12, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

What is "surrealistic" in that image? It is how the leaves look when they are looked at against the sun.--Mbz1 02:57, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Who said an image should have the same colours as "percieved by a human eye". There are many samples that prove otherwise. For example, when I am taking image of the stars not only I see more colors than my eye could see, I also see many more stars than I see with my eyes. Photograpghy is an art.Why a painter could paint something like this, and I cannot enhance the image? --Mbz1 14:43, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am happy with the perspective here, because it gives a realistic impression of how it actually looks if you stand so close in front of the building. I.e. the perspective is not a simple artifact of camera pitch here, as it is in many other pictures that have to be corrected. --Johannes Robalotoff 18:45, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

    • Thank you for the review. I agree the bird looks overexposured, but IMO because the main subject of the image is not the bird, but the bird with landscape, it might be OK.It is probably all, but impossible to take a landscape image like that and not to overexposure a very white bird.--Mbz1 15:55, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
      • Excuse, Mila. It is lovely, however the bird really looks plainly, as from a white paper. Overexposured, so not QI. Regretful :( --George Chernilevsky 16:06, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
        • I agree to what my previous speakers said and I suppose the overexposure is the result of your HDR software. If you have a RAW image or the original this is fixable. Once fixed this is a good QI. --Ikiwaner 22:25, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
          • The image was not HDRed. The egret is a white bird, and usually hard to show details of the feather even, if it is the main subject.
