A pair of Egrets taken in Florida. The f/g bird a Snowy egret the b/g bird a Great White Egret, both waiting an opportunity for food. Taken at Gatorland these birds congregate during the feeding sessions, who said birds were "bird brained "
Like the composition of this one Ron
Unusual use of dof blur - works for me. A
Like the b/g, superb clarity image Ron
Beautiful capture Ron - well done
Birds and animals pass on the knowledge from generation to generation. The young listen to the old, and learn, unlike the human species sadly.
I had the great pleasure of watching a huge flock of geese flying and cackling together way up North in Scotland, they flew in formation up the Bay of Tongue turned East at The mountains and vanished off still cackling to each other, I'll never forget that spectacular sight and the noise.
Like the repetition of shapes
Great shot of them together here Ron,
and the eye detail is wonderful
A lovely capture of him Ron. Food is the magic answer to almost every animal training.............Sandy
A lovely image.
Great shot. Wonderful colours and love how the dof creats extra interest.
Excellent additions Ron, especially the echoing forms on this.
Nicely captured, and good use of aperture, especially showing the "echo" in the background. Dontcha love Florida!
White birds are really difficult to photograph in strong sunlight but you've done a good job, here. The highlights are on the verge of blowing out but are held in check. The neck of the snowy egret is rather dark, though — much of it has rendered as a mid-grey, about the middle of the 16 shades of grey at the bottom of this page.
I would suggest a curves adjustment to brighten things up quite a bit. Put in a control point at (230,230) to stop the really bright highlights expanding any more, then grab the curve in the middle and lift it up quite a way. I'd also give a little sharpen, which you should always do after resizing because that takes away the pixel-level detail that makes images look sharp. Unsharp mask with radius 0.8 and strength 50 does a good job of putting back the sharpness that was there in the original. I've been fairly brief with my comments as it looks like you know your way around processing. If you'd like me to explain more or give more detail, just ask!
Nice capture and well thought through for effect,
