An Egret Fishing (Three Photographs)

I wanted to retain the moody lighting from the overcast day and the water reflections of the bird. Keeping the bird white and maintaining the detail in the feathers is often hard work in the field and in post processing. In camera I dialed down the exposure compensation by more than a stop and half. In post processing I preserved the overall dark nature of the background, despite histograms etc. indicating that I could lighten the photographs. There is always the temptation to do more in post-processing but I like to go in with a plan.
