CommentThis image was taken at Lake Seppings in Albany on a Grey morning. As the bird is relatively tall, I decided to try a portrait orientation, and I liked the way to top branch framed the bird in the shot so I left it in the composition without cropping it out. The side profile, with the bill looking long and thin, and the bird on one leg, makes it look like a posing statue in the tree. Edits: I enhanced the blacks slightly and added a bit of clarity in LR. Topaz denoise used to remove a sharpen image and remove a little bit of noise (there wasn't much though, as iso was only 640)
