King of Pelahatchie Bay

Post by minniev »

Here is my old friend, the blue heron who owns Pelahatchie Bay and essentially controls traffic there. He has enjoyed human traffic being much reduced this year, and is slightly less skittish than when humans were approaching constantly. This isn't very artistic but it was fun to get him with such a bland background so I just did some noise removal and left him as he was.

Thank ya Frank. Yeah, I didn't remove it and probably should. I'm so stubborn.

Thanks, I really didn't do anything to claim here, just some righteous noise reduction since I had to use a ridiculously high ISO to get the photo that light. I've been visiting with this heron for several years. Others come and go but he is always there.

Hi,Min
Without seeing the original I am unsure what your “treatment” was.
Given the angle from which the heron is viewed, I am distracted by an absence of at least a background water level. And of what is the background vertical brighter/darker delineation representative?

Not much treatment, just a little correction in Lightroom and some noise reduction, it’s pretty much “as is”. The heron is upon his favorite perch, the rail of the fishing pier at a local small-boat and canoe launch peering out across Pelahatchie Bay. The fog blurred the line of trees on the other side of the bay
