White Heron at Disney..

This shot was taken at Disney World. I was thrilled to see as many birds as I did right there in the park. Also, I am sure I broke about 10 photography rules with this shot as well. So feel free to critique so I can learn. Right now I am just talking shots that attract my attention and hoping for the best. What I really wanted to capture with this was the way the sun lite up his feathers around the edges. Please take a moment and click on the image to enlarge and tell me what you think.


Thanks for stopping by,
Craig

Craig..Craig...Craig.. Since when have you been concerned about rules..
Anyway, in the world of digital cameras there are no rules. Take the shot and delete.

It is kinda ironic, in Disney's world of make believe you captured something natural.

Rules...what rules? Some of my best shots are against the "Rules". Like Scot said...Take the shot!

Craig,
I agree with Richard,,,I don't think there are any rules..what ever captures your eye..b/c you never know what kind of shot you will get until you take it!! Love the lighting..and he looks quite large all the way up on that roof top!!

I agree w/ the rest - no rules. It's the world thru your eyes! I love that he was posing on top of this building on a sunny day!

Good for you for taking chances!

Having lived in the west, I don't usually think of Great Egrets on old west rooftops! This is too cool.

That is one cool shot! and with digital take as many shots as you can from every angle if you can and then go home and delete, delete, delete until you find the best one. Then crop, enhance, lighten or darken, sharpen and you have the perfect picture. And, you don't have to tell us you did any of that ...just snapped the shot. I would have loved to look up and see him there! Picture perfect. oh! and Craig! There really are rules but most of us are too excited when we see the 'shot' we forget what they are.

What a great photo! Love the lighting.... No rules... We follow our eye to create what we want to produce... And you've done beautifully here... I like the abstract of the two buildings.. Have a great week... :)
