A photographically risky move for me.
What is the subject here. This is one of my biggest nightmares when shooting in the wild. I like cropped, clean shots of birds and wildlife. The less busy the better.
I remember looking through the view finder at this scene. My thoughts kept going to – the tree is too prominent! While protesting internally I captured about three frames. At the same time I was thinking it would be one of the first deleted when previewing the days pic’s.
In post I realized the composition may be ok? The Heron was in it’s natural surroundings. The tree though huge in the photograph added a natural feel. In some ways the tree draws your eye to the Heron. In the end do I like it? It may not be my favorite. But it works….
