Great Egret

7 posts in this topic

Wish I could have gotten closer, but the mud was getting the better of me. Beautiful bird is the Great Egret. The white just blows out and these were taken on a cloudy day!

Mike the shots are very nice but if you would pull them into Photoshop and fix the whites I think your shots would be great. I took your first one and worked with the whites and was able to get out the detail in the wings.You should be able to get a better picture using the original.

Thanks all, Jim I'll try that. I'm still pretty weak in Photoshop but I learn a little more each week.

Don't be afraid to try stuff in Photoshop. The only thing to remember is to save it as a copy so you will always have the original to go back to some other day as your skills get better. I have been able to go back to shots I took years ago and fix my mistakes. Heck I am still making them and fixing them today grin

I am not sure what version you have but Scott Kelby has a book for just about everyone with easy to follow instructions on how to do almost everything.

The last image is serene and lovely, I enjoy the lush surroundings and the calm water.
