Pair of Troublemakers


You just know that these two are up to no good :)

This is an image that saw more of Photoshop than one of my typical images. This was taken on the Anhinga Trail in the Everglades back in May this year. I was walking the trail with a 1D4 and a 500 and saw these two herons (juvenile green herons I believe) but one was perched a couple of feet behind the other. So I took two shots, one with the plane of focus on each heron with the intent of fusing the images in Photoshop later. Since I was hand holding the alignment wasn't perfect and it turned out the final image was a little tight on the left requiring extending the image with a lot of copy and pasting, clone stamping and content aware filling.
