Great Egret...the Watchman

This is another beauty from my awesome visit to the Alligator Farm last weekend. I can't wait to return. This shot was underexposed (-7/10 EV) and lightened after RAW conversion in hopes of retaining the details in the bird's white feathers which tend to overexpose...a process I am still perfecting....this particular shot was taken on program mode at 85mm, was spot metered, and has been cropped...these are really lovely, majestic birds, any thoughts on improvement would be appreciated...
