Of course, not a monster of the sea, but the way it seems to materialise from the water …
… Well, I was having this encounter just before the sun was creeping over the tree line at Fort Myers beach… Since we don’t have these colourful Spoonbills in Europe, I was very happy with it. There’s more on my blog should you be interested: https://www.hansoverduin.nl/rosie-revisited/
Thanks for any feedback & have a wonderful day, Hans

I like the shot. My instinct would be to darken it a bit, and pump up the contrast some.
Thanks for your reaction, Dave ! I see what you mean, but as a matter of fact I did just the contrary to get this smooth and milky feeling, which was what I was after. Maybe I should have mentioned that in the text … Whether you like it better this way or ‘your way’ is of course a matter of personal preference … Appreciate your comment in any case ! Cheers, Hans
As usual, a beautiful image. I viewed your other Rosie Revisited images and love them all, although the one in the tree is quite a bit different than the others. RE: Dave’s and your processing ideas: I like your processing but might go even a bit further.
Beautiful! Your slide overexposure makes the colors really glow. As always your depth of field really isolates the subject.
Hans, Congrats on EP. I like your presentation of the Spoonbill. I like the overall softness of the image.
Thanks all for your reactions and nice to be chosen as the EP !
