Bannerghatta zoo Bangalore
|| Black-crowned night heron ||
I personally felt that the subject has got the catch light and the eyes are well lit. Followed the rule of thirds. Received a good feedback in my friends group. Would like to know if I could have done something more to make it even better.
Lucky enough got to see the animal not frequently seen so close. Distance was so close by that unable to zoom out quickly and did not wanted to miss the opportunity so keeping the lense at its full zoom , captured the portrait. Lovely eyes with a terrific stare and the slow stalking added the punch into the image. Morning low light compelled to shoot up the ISO little bit to achieve the descent shutter speed. As the animal was not moving quickly shutter speed 1/160 was enough to capture the action.

Looks nice….but always try to get good eye contact in birds / mammals / people photography. That brings in more life to image.
