Photographer's Note

On an early morning stroll around the island, I spotted this fellow fishing in the shallows. Unfortunately I only had the wide angle lens with me as I was intending to get some drift wood shots, but in the end, he was too engrossed in what he was doing to notice me creeping up on him for a closer look. I still had to crop the picture quite harshly, but I'm pleased with the end result.

In light of some of your comments, I have posted a work
shop cropping the frame further to remove the distracting jetty. I didn't do this originally as I thought it would place the heron to close to the top of the frame. I'd be interested in your comments on the difference.
