Egret a Different look

Discussion in 'Birds' started by hangin tree, Sep 5, 2008.

  1. As I was watching these birds and wanted to get a little different look. By waiting for poses, getting a lower shooting angle and Shorter DOF I think I got better BG seperation.

    Last shot not one of my favs, not quite sharp to my eye, or maybe a touch over sharpened to compensate for a slight bluring the head and feet, the wings are fine, but something bothers me on this image,

    But I like the first three! Especially Number 2 WOW

    Yes I meant to holler,

    Just love the colors and look to the images, number two is da bomb, so much to like, so much going on, love the wing/head tuck.

    Great capture, great colors, great post, great photog, great pic on number 2, love the spacing and negative space to the image, gives a calm effect.

  3. everything Wade said., and a Wow., well done.

    You certainly achieved what you were after. #2 is my favorite.
  8. Much Appreciated Art!!!
  9. You have done it again, only better! All four are outstanding. I like #2 and #4 as a pair, the best.

    Each photo as a blurry area in the front that I wish was not there. If you are proficient in Photoshop perhaps you can remove those. I hope you do not mind my comment, I really do love these photos.

    Hi Gary,
    Super set. I really like the contrast between the bird and the rest of the photo. They are all great photos.
  11. Thanks Birgit

    That is from using the very Shallow DOF and I'm horrible at PP.

    Many Thanks Friend!!!
  12. Excellent set Gary. I also love #2.
  13. Wow!
    Great stuff Gary!
  14. Thank You Guys I appreciate your comments!!!:smile:
  15. Superb set Gary. Excellent background and colors, they really set off the egret.
  16. I agree with everything Wade said about this series. I like #2
    best also. The setup for the whole scene is perfect and you
    nailed the exposure.
    Thanks for sharing.
