Fishing at first light
This is a derivative work based upon a Great Egret shot I took at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge back on 8-16-2009 and the following elements.
A Creative Commons photo from Flickr user "Steve Took it" formed the basis of the background.
Several background texture layers purchased from Distressed Textures were blended in order to try and capture that morning break mood. The final work is being released under a Creative Commons license as a derivative work.
