Egrets fishing at sunset in Backbay in Newport Beach California.

Quality is not great, but I like the way the backlight illuminated the birds.

Way,

I cropped the image because I like to have nature up close and personal. The were a bit lost in the original and the sun in the background was too light. Increased the midtones a bit. Hope you like. Couldn't lighten the shadows on the bodies of the egrets.

Best wishes,

Mike
