We are back on Dauphin Island !! A vacation for me is not a vacation unless I can take some pictures. My dear husband totally understands this , so another D800 . Still waiting for repair estimates from Nikon on the one I dropped.

Arrived late this afternoon, and here are just a couple of shots in the wonderful afternoon light. We won't talk about all those nasty almost invisible biting bugs that are relentless , they are here too.

As always nits, crits , comments and suggestions are much appreciated.

Thank you for taking time to look and comment.

Hope you enjoy,

Birdie

I really like the effect of the water in #1 and the BG in #2. Did you use some processing technique to achieve that effect, or did it just work that way. Excellent willet.

Thank you so much Don. The water in one just worked out that way. I happened to just catch the wave before it broke. Also the water was shallow and the willet was disturbing the sand as it walked in the water. So, it was just a lucky accident with the fast shutter of 1/1600.

The yellow flowers in the second were far enough behind the heron , that the lens just blurred them. Normally, I blur them in post, but this time did not have to.

Both birds are very nice, but the water in 1 makes that shot, and the bg in 2 works very well ~ Ron

Both are very nice. But that affect with the water in the first and seeing the far foot/leg through the water is very cool.

What a neat way to get a second body...I'll have to consider that going forward
Both images are up to your very, very high standards and somehow I don't think it was just luck that you got the water to look like that. Sometimes what we call luck is the skill that's been developed over time and has just become intuitive.

No.1 is a super shot Birdie, the legs under the water really make it something different!

Sorry to hear about your camera, I hope it comes back good as new and doesn't cost to much either!

Wonderful effect given by that lucky wave in #1
Good luck with your new D800
