Interesting light, interesting patterns in the water and an interesting arrangement of birds. The zoom on the H50 reaches out to frame it.

Taken at the mouth of the San Diego River (flood control channel), an excellent place to see a wide variety of water birds in San Diego.

Exposing for the water meant that the backs of the birds, in full sun, is slightly blown, but since it is the pattern that is of interest, I can live with that.

Sony DSC H50 at 400mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Recovery in Lightroom, which adds transparency to the water almost as a polarizer would, and some fill light to lighten the shadows on the birds. Normal Presence settings (added Clarity and Vibrance). Sharpen landscape preset.

From San Diego 2009.
