Whilst the bird is only moderately pretty...this is a very clever and effective photo. I like the reflected beak shape in the background. Great work. I think this deserves 10/10 for originality.

I normally am not a big fan of bird photos because they usually consist of a bird in the center of the frame with a busy background or blue sky. This photo is a nice change, with a well thought-out composition. My only minor quibble is that the tiny sliver of something on the right edge should probably be cropped.

I like the heron, but I do not like the log(?) and its reflection in the background. Admittedly, there needs to be something there to appropriately balance the bird, but in this case I feel the log adds too much unwanted tension. The point-like shape is reminiscent of a sword about to stab into the back of the heron's head, thus disrupting the otherwise calm image.

 

Unless, of course, that was your intention...
