I merged two separate exposures to produce an HDR image that retained some foreground color but kept the sky from being washed out.
While photographing a tree on an island in the James River, I realized there was a Great Blue Heron perched on one of the branches. Pleased the heron was close enough for some zoomed in shots, I took several pictures before it flew away. This was my favorite picture of the bunch.
Like all the other pictures on my blog, you can click on this one to see a larger version of the image.
