Title: Reflection of a Heron
Location: Stop me if you’ve heard this one….Double Bluff Beach, Whidbey Island, Washington, USA
|Exp Comp||-1 2/3|
|Camera||Canon EOS 5D|
|Lens||Canon 28-300mm L|
While I did increase the blacks a little in this image, there is no grand Photoshop trickery going on here. I moved close enough to the heron so he blended into the rocks behind him. I also underexposed the image to help bring the shutter speed into a handheld range as I didn’t have my tripod this day. Although it appears as the bird has an eye socket in the reflection, this is only caused by the ripples on the water.
