Herons on Texel, edit
Copyright ©2005, Edward van Hazendonk ¤

These Herons where "shot" with terrible light and damp conditions. This spot was on the Island Texel which is part of The Netherlands. I did some levels (placed the white, gray and black spot on the heron). Maybe some other tasks need to be performed, don't shoot me I'm only working with Photoshop for about 4 months, and I can say it's a steep learning curve;-)

Nice photo, although do you think maybe the horizon could have been placed on a line other than than vertical center?

I was just in the Netherlands -- lots of photogenic opportunities.

You got them in a very good pose. Maybe lying down on the grass would make them look more prominent in the pict. Did you forget to switch to a lower iso?

I like...

the colours and perspectives in the image - especially the 'receding' herons. The almost silhouetted windmill is very well placed in the compisition. A heavy crop to top and bottom really improves this picture - and will remove the vignetting in the corners. Keep up the good work, Edward.

much better than the first one. but there is a vignetting in the upper (and lower?) corners. if u shoot raw u can fix it in ACR.

A lovely composition with natural color.

Thank you all for taking the time to comment on my picture. Because of the lighting (which was very bad) I took 800 ISO (also because I forgot to set it back due to the 50-200 which needed lots of light, to be stable enough to shoot by hand) Next time I'll try to adjust my position to make the composition stronger (I was standing on the road, no entrance to the fields due to breading time). I've another composition of the same scene, I need to adjust the colors as in this picture, tomorrow I'll take some time to perform that task. Regards, Edward
