Lovely post-processing, NogDog. From the way you got the clouds to pop against a darkened sky, it definitely appears that you post processed using red filtering. Great job!

Effectively, yes: I decreased the blue luminance. :)

Lovely. Looks like a big one. Is that a blue heron? I'm certainly no expert on birds, but he looks sort of blue and heron-like.

Not just a blue heron, but a "great blue heron". :)

I lived on a lake with an island in the middle. About every two years, a great blue heron would appear. He seemed to be bigger than the sandhill cranes we have in my area now.

Nice capture, NogDog.

Plus a little "spot removal" in Lightroom to remove a couple pieces of trash from the shoreline.  ::)

For some reason I find leafless trees silhouetted against the sky to be interesting.

This photography hobby is a money pit.  8) Traded in my Nikon D5300 for their best crop-sensor model, the D500 (used). Haven't had much of a chance to really do anything with it due to the weather and my work schedule, but I like how this photo turned out.



Nikon D500 + 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens
140mm, 1/1600sec, f/6.3, ISO 400
