I'm not finding any local herons this season, so I figured I'd revisit some older photos.

PP: This was taken against the sun, so I lightened up the shadows Photoshop. Before: [link]

I like the back light and the fact that you didn't go overboard when you reworked the shadows. The temptation to overlighten often leads to an unnatural look.
Good work.

Thank you! It was almost a mistake that I chose to lighten this one up. I was using it as an example of an under-exposed image and wanted to see if I could salvage it as an example. It turned out surprisingly well after a few adjustments.
