About the Image(s)

I am sending the original image and edited image. I cropped the image to have just the bird in the image. I changed the sky with a sky I took at another time.
I cleaned up the limbs that was sticking out.

Nice composition and editing work Linda. I like how you have captured action in the image with the bird actively flapping its wings, either taking off or landing. The foliage on the right is a nice counterpoint to the bird giving us context. I like your new sky, but wonder why you added the reddish ring at the top? You have some nice detail in the bird, what lens did you use and how close were you to it?   Posted: 06/08/2021 12:30:57

I used a 150 - 600mm Tamron Lens on a full frame camera. I think too it would be better without the reddish in the sky. Thanks for the feedback.   Posted: 06/12/2021 13:07:38

This is just magnificant. The position of the wings just make this image! Good idea on the sky. This has a surreal feel to it. A lovely and well balanced image. Possibly desaturate the upper left just a little.   Posted: 06/08/2021 15:31:39

Thank you Mark for your positive feedback and I am always a little heavy on the saturate. Will have to pull back a little.   Posted: 06/12/2021 13:10:17

What a beautiful photo. I love capturing Cranes and Egrets and Herons, they are such incredible animals. This is a fantastic shot, I'm glad you cropped it to just show the one bird. I would maybe tone down the contrast in the leaves to force the focus more on the bird. For me, since the leaves stand out so much, it pulls my eyes over that way first.   Posted: 06/11/2021 09:41:19

Thank you for that tip on the bright green leaves. I will make that change. I feel the same way.   Posted: 06/12/2021 13:03:45

YES! It immediately pulls my attention more to the bird, which again is an incredible shot!!!!   Posted: 06/14/2021 14:30:34
