Default Great Blue & Reflection

in Green Cay Wetlands today I captured this Great Blue Heron, then I captured its reflection. Which do you prefer.

I also tried stitching the two photos, it worked!

I'd like #3 best I think if the shot complied to a more standard photo size such as 8x10. I find the narrowness of the shot a little uncomfortable (since you've added the reflection). With more space to the right it would then be my preference.

I agree, its a great stitch of some great shots, but I would try to add a digital frame around the image to give it the perception of more width (of course cropping framing tighter on top and bottom)

Thanks for sharing

I like the stitched photo. It does appear to be cropped a bit close, but the aspect of the picture doesn't bother me at all. I often crop pictures in non-conformist types of ways, if it suits the subject.
