Big Blue by Tarrby

I took this Great Blue Heron at Indian Shores in Florida, but I wasn’t too happy with the background so I introduced a pier from Fort Myers and a couple of textures including some light fog. Finally I added a filter in CS3 to warm it up a bit and give the impression of the early sun breaking through.
