yes this works very well. I too reminded Ginger with this shot..in her bird shots, she rarely isolated the bird, it was always in its natural surroundings - she always made a bird shot a landscape shot as is this one. beautiful.
Thanks George, I feel the same way. I was in Florida recently and told Nonda I wanted to get some shots like Ginger with the birds in the grasses and marshes. I did get a few, she so inspired me with her work. She had such a talent for looking at a shot and invisioning what she would do in ps.
You know, this works very well. I'm a little surprised cause it's so obviously a composite due of the lighting. But I really like this alot. But I'm a sicker for a beautiful sunset or sunrise and that one is very nice indeed :)
