Surfing and Horizons (Two Photographs)

This Black-Crowned Heron looks like he might enjoy surfing. Many photography tips talk about getting horizons straight in your shots, especially in landscapes. This may be a bit confusing when shooting ducks and birds, as you have to guess where the horizon is. Fortunately some post processing programs have tools to help with this. In the first shot out of the camera it does look more like the heron is surfing than in the second where the horizon is slightly different. I think this underlines the creative value of setting a good horizon, or the impact a slight change can make.
