Great White Poser by renaissanceman3 Great White Poser by renaissanceman3
I had met this same heron a few days before on the sand bar. I was following him around, trying to capture the Great White taking off majestically. I didn't quite get the shot I wanted, but this morning he saw me out of the corner of his eye, gave me a pose, then went back to fishing the tidal pool for a shrimp breakfast.

I really enjoy this shot. Though, the image of the bird stands out a bit too much because of its reflection. Perhaps lowering the opacity of the reflection so it blends into the water and gives it a bit more of a natural feel. Still though, you are correct when you stated you are located in a beautiful area :)

that was what make it stand out immediately. I know I've done that on many pieces. Worked on it too long at one time to where I didn't notice the little adjustments that needed correction. It's still a magnificent shot, but the correction with make it even greater.

You are correct. Both images were taken in the same pond during the same shoot, but I didn't like the background he was in front of soooo .... I changed it.
