19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Egret Time

This is an intentional camera movement of an egret feeding in a dark pond.Initially, I could not use a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the motion of the moving egret.I liked the colorful background,reeds that appeared to be pointing to the egret,and the streaking lines of the reflections.The light was quite contrasty which initially suggested the passage of time.
