A great egret pictures, wonderful, I'm impressed. Some of them are in the air and we can see their wings like ghost and some of them are in the water like snow... Very very fascinating picture. Congratulations Réka Zsimon :)
Thank you. :-)

How this photo was taken is the first thing that comes to mind. Simply stunning. Do share the technique if possible
So is the ribbon fog like background a filter add on or what? It is a stunning shot and this special effect lends to the whole aura of it. I would love to know what is this filter?
Thank you for everybody.

My goodness,this picture is a double 'wow'. Another beautiful blue shot that takes ones breath away. Their slim black legs, the only other color to be seen in a really beautiful group of great egrets. Congratulation's. The effect above them is like a swirling mist that is as they say, something else! j.e.s.
That's an absolutely fantastic work! The colors are beautiful but the most interesting thing is:
I can still realize that these are birds flying away...Therefore the shutter speed is perfect.
Is it animated or your shot? In this picture bottom end is clear by my side but what about the upper end!!
I am eagerly waiting for your reply.
@Linda Ward KirkendaleMy guess would be that it is not a filter at all; rather, the effect is likely created from a time lapse shot. The "ribbon" effect is actually the wings of the Great Egrets as they take off and land.
@Edward Minaei Oh, I was wondering how this effect was done. Still the motion blur would not give you the white ribbon like fog. How is this achieved, do you know?
@Tanmoy Ray A long shutter speed has been used. Since the birds tend to stand quite still you get the sharp image of the birds and then the ghosting effect is the birds taking flight.
