Great blue herons are impressive birds and I wanted to see how I could work with the backgrounds to make the birds stand out (using masks and adjustments in Tonality CK and Lightroom). Overall I am pleased having tried out various options. In terms of darkening the background using contrast, highlights and exposure using the highlights was the best option in my view. Masking in Tonality and Lightroom is not as easy as in Photoshop but I am working at learning the tools.
