Title Great Blue Heron
Description I hope you don't mind the re-submission....and appreciate those that encouraged to resubmit and the clarification that watermarks are permitted and to be ignored, but most importantly, the advice on the impact of the watermark I had created so I've reduced the size....thanks. Those that asked for clarification on the 800 on the's the highest the K5 will show due to internal shake reduction....the lens used was the A*1200.

The photo was taken during a dark fall day when the sun peeked out illuminating the heron. I reduced the shot to -7 EV the pushed post processing to bring the Heron forward while keeping the background dark.

Thanks for reviewing again.
