It is always fascinating how quickly the morning light changes. In the following 2 shots the greater yellow legs is profiled by the changing light conditions of the sun rising behind the bird.

Very cool shot !! Maybe cropping needs a little rethinking, but the color and the water highlights are really cool !!

yes you could crop the bird out and it would still be a fantastic pic :-)

:lol:Yes that´s true, but not exactly what i meant, because the bird is necessary to give ita sense of dimension and alsoaddslifeto the pic. Otherwise, could be mistaken for a PS abstract art.

I like the mood of this - very creative. If the rest of the original frame was as good, have you tried a different crop with the bird positioned more to the left of center?

I agree with that, because the bird seems to be looking a bittowards the right

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. As suggested I have cropped the photo differently, with the bird to the left of centre. I like them both!! I also have a photo of the same bird minutes later under different lighting conditions. Again a profile shot. Very little manipulation except I increased the saturation to bring it closer to the real light of the morning.
All the best,
Joe B.

Much better. Maybe there is something to the Rule of Thirds, after all.
