Default Sunbeam, Shadows and Morning Mist

Lots of conflicting light here, sunbeam through the tree shadows, with a mist to complicate things. Used the E-3 spot metering on the Snowy Egret's eye, and a -3/10 EV at ISO800. I was pleased with the results.

You should be pleased - that's a very striking image and even more so because of the contrasty lighting.

There you go again Steve, posting more eye candy that makes me wish I could get close to the Egrets around here. Even with a 300mm, I doubt I could fill the viewfinder. Very nervous birds around these parts. Very, very nice!

Default I changed my mind - you should publish it yourself

Instead of having the State buy your photo, you should publish your own book of photos:



Assemble your photos and publish a book through Lulu, like a lot of folks have done. Then shop it around to places that cater to tourists.

I'm serious. You have the photos. Or if yours are more pertinent to the Tampa-St. Pete area, title it that.
