I can't thank Kevan enough for taking the time to work on exposure with me at Circle B Bar Reserve. I had so many images come straight out the camera that were perfect that I was blown away. All I had to do was some comp crops and post! This may just look like a duck in flight.... but to me, it looks like the type of image I've been striving for... and I'm very excited that I'm on the path to finally getting what I want. Simple, clean, sharp and it looks exactly how it did as I watched this bird fly by in my viewfinder.
