About the Image(s)

There are some great blue herons nesting in eucalyptus tree in a park nearby last spring.. I was taking photos of them with a telephoto lens. I sharpened it and got rid of the noise with Topaz Sharpener ai and then adjusted the exposure and brightened the eye.

Great flight image with the branch for a nest in the mouth. The wings being up help the image.   Posted: 11/14/2021 10:35:40

Nice picture! The pure white background made it simple, clear and clean. Well done!   Posted: 11/16/2021 14:04:46

Wings up, legs back, moderate tonality of feathers, with high key effect and a story to tell. Nice capture Barbara.   Posted: 11/19/2021 15:34:48

Beautiful image. Everything about it from the tone, the lines, the angle of the branch, and the background is first rate.   Posted: 11/24/2021 18:00:22

Excellent image Barbara. Did you replace the background? What was in the background originally? The white background brings complete focus on the sharpness of the bird and the very interesting subject matter and was wondering if some background would have enhanced the image and put it in a natural environment? Would love your thoughts on this.   Posted: 11/25/2021 05:06:24

The sky was gray and disappeared when I corrected the exposure on the bird. I could have added some clouds but chose not to.   Posted: 11/25/2021 19:55:03
