About the Image(s)

Taken while I was playing golf late one evening last week. Supper time and this Blue was concentrating on his supper. Shot with Olympus OMD E-1 MK III 28-100. I liked the back light and the intense concentration

The back light really makes this photo! I can "feel" evening coming. Light and shade all well exposed! Would not change a thing!   Posted: 06/10/2020 18:24:07

I like how the light is striking under the beak, neck and chest of this bird. The highlights are well exposed although I would like to see the body a little bit lighter, I think that would make the heron almost glow in the evening light.   Posted: 06/12/2020 20:36:50

very nice rim light in on the bird. I would agree with Bruce to add more light the bird's body. also the leafs or the plant green is kind of distracting which is on the bird and need some kind of burn tool in photoshop to lower it in the part only   Posted: 06/17/2020 10:28:12

I agree with all the above, lightening the body and darkening the leaves. Wonderful profile.   Posted: 06/19/2020 09:21:25

This is just an idea that I would try if I were the maker. Make this image into a Black and white and bring down the highlights and bring up the shadows. I love the rim light on the Birds body. This is a beautiful image. Great time of the day to get some great light. I also cropped the image and gave the bird a little more room on the right side in photoshop.   Posted: 06/25/2020 11:14:45

Thanks Linda,
I did do it in B&W and like both. I like your crop.   Posted: 06/25/2020 14:24:19

I prefer the colour version and I like the crop that Linda suggested. In Lightroom I dragged a graduated filter from top to bottom, then selected the Range Mask to Colour. I sampled some of the bright green with the ey dropper tool then lowered the highlights.   Posted: 06/30/2020 19:59:14
