Great Egrets – St Augustine, Florida

The grace of Florida’s Great Egrets is simply amazing. While I was in Florida for the winter art fairs I had time to spend in St Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. The rookery where I spent most of the week was wonderful and allowed me to enjoy the spring nesting rituals of the Great Egrets and several other Florida birds.

This nesting pair of Great Egrets reminded me of an oriental painting. By using the Canvas setting in the Texture pallet in the Filter Gallery of Photoshop CS6 I was able to give this image the feel of an Oriental Painting.

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
