Re: Great Blue Heron (up close & personal!)

I am trying to figure out the lighting. It looks as though the sun is back lighting your subject. As I study the pictures I don't see the color I would expect. I do not know if you post processed these or not. Each picture is very sharp and well done with exposure, sharpness and composition. They remind me of my osprey that was back lit.

I applied levels(didn't need much) then I lightened the shadows and darkened the highlights on my favorite shot you took.

This I feel helped a bit

Your shutter speed is good the ISO looks as though this was shot late in the day.
