Tri-color Heron; Mom with chicks.  by Adelet Kegley

April 2021 - Tri-color Heron; Mom with chicks.

About the Image(s)

By- passed this image originally as the raw was dull and mostly saw so many twigs. I did basic edits in Lightroom and saw that there were some good views of the chicks. I used a circle high light to brighten the chicks, then did some overall contrast of main image. Had to take to Photoshop to clean up detail of messy white spots. did not have to remove any twigs--all in background darkened areas.

Good job in working at it until you came up with the correct angle to get a clean shot of the chicks. Good eye catcher.   Posted: 04/05/2021 21:52:00

Good sharp image of the heron and great pose with her babies. I probably would have removed that one twig in front, but that's just me. Great shot.   Posted: 04/13/2021 19:58:11
