During my “Birds of South Florida” workshop for Palm Beach Photographic Centre, we went to Green Cay Wetlands, arriving before sunrise. As we made our way around the boardwalk the sky was just turning a warm shade of pink when this egret presented itself. I liked the contrast of the warm sky with the cool green grass and the reflection of the bird.

Ansel Adams said, “The negative is the score and the print is the performance.”
In today’s digital world, the raw file is the score and the processed image is the performance. Check out this video of how I crafted the performance from my raw capture.
