The background is an empty Little League Baseball field shot with a fisheye lens. I have used this background on a previous composite abo...

Re: 'Fantasy Baseball Observation' (Composite)

Re: Goldeneye

A Goldeneye to a GoodEye !!! Nice observation to capture this blue heron Minnie. Everything that needs to be is tack sharp and full of pleasing color. No suggestions for any improvements.
