One of the great things about wildlife photography - you never know what you're going to face from day to day. The heron sitting on this "mast" of a raft sitting in a pond in one of the local parks added some unusual colour.

Thanks Victor - on those gray, bright overcast days, it's something I've liked to experiment with.

The only real cloning I did was to remove some twigs to the left & right of the image with the warbler.

Thanks John, takes a little playing around with. However, processing RAW images in Capture gives me a lot of leeway in adjusting exposure.

In fact, on the Blue Jay (my first shot of the morning), I was shooting matrix metering and severely underexposed the image. I was able to compensate a full +2 stops and perform a little noise reduction. This still produced a fairly decent quality image.
The other 3 did not require as much after I switched to spot metering.

Thanks Mark - he was sitting eating some white berries, but in deeper shade. Hoping to get some of those, but shutter speed ending up being too slow. However, did like the beginning of the fall colurs showing up in the iamge.

Nice series Richard!

When I first saw these this morning I was going to ask if you set out create high key images or if a bright featureless sky drove you in the high key direction. You comment above answered that question.

I know how difficult it can be to shoot in those conditions. You have done a great job at turning adverse shooting conditions into a series of wonderfully artistic images.

Hi Dave, thanks - probably my favourite as well. It looks clean, love the colour of the post and the way it leads your eye right up its leg into its body.

As always, great shots Richard.

My fave is the catbird - the grey and green really make the Hugh key work. Isolates the bird detail perfectly. A good last day to summer.

Thanks Linda, I'm somewhat flabbergasted by all the responses and quite humbled. It was a good day, but I'm looking forward to the next few weeks as colours change, leaves fall and more waterfowl return to the area.

Thanks for stopping by Ron. Really appreciate your kind words. So many types of warblers out there, and they can look so different in the fall.
