Magnificent shot. Bravo. The tones and composition are truly elegant. I would love to see this as a large print.
The smoothness of the speeding water above the crisp splash below is arresting. Superb technique.Re: EgretReply #7 on: June 5, 2022 at 2:17 pm

Paul, Forgive me for calling you John. I don’t remember whom I’d been talking to, but it must have been a John. My second son is a Paul, so it’s obvious I have no problem with the name. Your egret is a fine shot. I’m not sure who he is. He looks a lot like the other egrets I’ve seen.

Thanks, Russ. No problem. I’ve been called a lot worse.

Paul, I like this so much. How did you get the water over the spillway like that? At first I thought a very slow shutter, but the water below it looks like it is caught with a fast shutter.
The egret is perfect, with the legs breaking the water flow, and the beautiful mishapen shadow. Thanks.

Geof, thanks for your comments. That’s just the way the water was flowing that day. As I recall we’d had a lot of rain and the lake level was high. This was shot a 1/800 at 200mm.
