About the Image(s)

This female Gray Heron has several chicks in the nest. I caught this as the sun was setting and thought the light worked better as black and white 1-29-21.
Nikon D500, 500 mm PF, 1/3200, f/10, ISO 200, tripod and gimbal.

I started the image in Lightroom, took it in to Photoshop to remove a distracting branch, then Topaz DeNoise, and finally Nik Silver Effects for conversion to black and white.

This is a fantastic image! I would never have consider switching it up to a B&W but it is remarkable how much it improves clarity of the three birds and makes them stand out. Nice job!!! I love Denoise particularly and when I take to black and white I use Nik Silver Efex, I just don't switch it that often. I think I might have to try!   Posted: 02/17/2021 13:24:20
