Day of the Great Blue Heron

Composite photo of a GBH silhouette (mask layer) combined with a BG bottom layer I created for this image. The original photo was taken last year in hazy light, near sundown.

Thank you, Lisa, Tarun, Stan, Jeff, and Amalia! I appreciate your encouraging feedback! :-) It's around this time of year that the several herons (and cormorants) nest in a tree on an island in a nearby lake. I really enjoy watching them fly to and from the tree, but often the lighting, or the sky in the background, is not optimal. Thanks again, everyone!

Fantastic composite, Cary! Amazing capture to begin with (how I'd love to get a photo of one of these birds!), and perfect PS work. This is a winner, imho!
