CommentIt was such a stunning dawn on the harbour. I nearly didn't get up...I had planned to, but I really wanted to stay in bed...so glad I didn't. I got to spend time with this Great Egret just as the sunlight spread over Princess Royal Harbour.
EquipmentCanon EOS 1DX MKII, Canon 500mm F4 IS L, F/7.1, 1/3200, ISO 640 and post-processed using DPP4 & PS. Processing steps were minimal. First I undertook RAW conversion to 16-bit tiff file in DPP4 which included a gamma adjustment and lens optimisation, then in PS a horizon adjustment, very subtle custom curves to add a little contrast, added a touch of saturation and a colour balance adjustment for a subtle lift in the yellow tones from the early morning light, resize and sharpen for web.
