Canon Powershot S3-PS applied
Photo of a Great Blue Heron on a dock at our cabin on Lost Lake in northern WI. Early morning sunrise provided this silhouette lighting. Slight crop, sharpening, contrast, light rendering spotlight, brightness, curves, color sat, cloning and gaussian blur applied. Had fun with this! Entered into Animals.
