Their flight caught me a bit off guard.

Nice, Eddie!

How about cropping from the bottom and leaving the park/pavillion in the top half? Or, make it a panoramic shot with just the egrets above the water. So many possibilities...

Hey Russ,

OK, how about these?

This really grabbed me when I opened it. I'd be tempted to clone out the branch and pavilion but leave the bridge by cropping just above it. IMO it would make a great 12 x7 to 7.5

Crop off the bottom above the intruding tree just like in your last crop but leave the top.

After the cropping as Clarence suggested, the shot tansforms into an abstract. Nicely done
