Great Blue Heron at Sunrise in Florida Wetlands

Nov 25, 2012 | Animals & Wildlife

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

I’m pretty impress with the dynamic range in this scene considering how I’m shooting into the sunrise but the Blue Heron is still visible and not completely black. This is a single exposure image with light tone mapping in Photomatix Pro for a little color and detail in the shadows.
