Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

Nice shot of the heron! Your egret photo isn’t as highly rated for me as it would be, if it was correctly exposed. If you zoom in to the white areas, you can see how they’re really bright with no feather detail visible. You could fix that in the field by lowering your exposure, or fix it after the fact during editing.

Not sure if forum etiquette requires me to disclose that I used the Auto Smart Fix feature of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 to get the final product below.  I've included the original as the second picture.  If the program logic only corrected the lighting and contrast, I imagine the photo should still be pretty authentic.  Please let me know if the final color saturation gives the Turkey Vulture a phony photoshopped look:
