Oldies recovered

From the CDs of old shots (2004 and 2005), here are some that may be Darkroom-worthy. (I'm picking ones that I don't remember posting before, but since that would have been 12 or 13 years ago, I may mess up and repost some - my apologies if so.)

1) Snowy Egret (Egretta thula), foraging at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. They shuffle their feet in the water and quickly grab any small prey this reveals. This one is SOOTC other than cropping (Taken 2005/02/28)



2) White Pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorynchos), American Wigeons (Anas americana), and one or two American Coots (Fulica Americana), taken at a small local park on 2004/12/27)



C&C is always appreciated.

I may add more oldies to the thread, and if so I'll try to give each a different number.

Terrific shots, especially the Egret.

Re: Oldies recovered

Thanks, Doug.

It was one of those very rare lucky shots that turned out better SOOTC than what I could have achieved with any amount of post-processing.

Super duper Egret shot.
The one with the multiple birds has a little too much going on for me. However, it is still interesting to see the white pelicans grooming themselves.

Re: Oldies recovered

Thanks Lorell. Yes, I count #1 as one of my best egret shots. As for #2, I agree that it's quite busy; what I like about it is the contrast in color & value & size of the different birds, and the blue vs brown color interaction in the water.
