    Congratulations Richard Lovison for your image "Dreaming of Flight - repost" being chosen as the Out of the Box Image for the week ending 1/14 /2011!!!

    Hello to everyone,

    It has been a while since I've posted an image at BFN and I've let my membership lapse. After being inspired by some of Denise's recent work I thought I'd try participating in the forums once again.

    The following image was taken in June of 2006 at a remote location in the hills of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. I stumbled upon a Heron Rookery during one of my hikes and then returned many times to try and capture some images. The nests were located about 30 feet high in dead trees located in the middle of a pond. I was shooting from within a camouflaged tent on the shoreline about 40 feet from the base of the tree holding the nest.

    Equipment:
    Olympus E-1
    Takahashi FC60 500mm, f8 Refractor (1000mm equivalent with the E-1)
    1/1600 sec
    iso 800
    tripod
    cable release

    The post processing used in this image was an experiment using Fractalius where the Fractalius layer was blended with the original shot at about 50% opacity. Then a layer mask was used to bring out more detail in the eye. Denise's fine tutorial on Fractalius helped a great deal in this experiment.

    The image was cropped a bit and a large branch in front of the bird was cloned out.

    Looking forward to any thoughts, comments or critiques.

    Richard
