Darter Silhouette

This is my favourite shot from our trip to Kruger. It was a cold cold morning but the rising mist created a stunning arena for photography. Here I have deliberately underexposed the shot not only to create a silhoutte but also so as not to burn out the delicate colours of the beautifully lit sunrise.

See my trip report at (Now Updated)


I have updated this shot now that I have improved my Photoshop skills. There were a few small gaps in the feathers which were slightly distracting and have been respectfully filled in, the colours are a touch smoother and a thin stroke (border) has been added.
