Challenge: Triptych (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX APO IF HSM for Canon
Location: Blackwater NWR, Maryland
Date: Nov 9, 2005
Aperture: f 5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/1250 sec
Galleries: Nature, Animals
Date Uploaded: Nov 12, 2005

at maximum zoom and using 2x teleconverter

Added 3/17/06: The framing in the triptych was done bit by bit on each of the three images before they were joined. I did a fair amount of trial and error, and figureing on a scratch pad, before I came up with the right combinations. The key was to use assymetrical borders on the three parts. All was done with PaintShop Pro 7. Not really difficult but somewhat time consuming at first attempt.

I lke your wildlife shots a lot... herons are one of my favourite things to photograph... I really like the colors, the warm browns that are in some of yours... How do you get them to look like that? I am not very good at all in PShop but would appreciate it if you could give me a few suggestions.

Gorgeous images. I think the brown frame detracts though, it's too heavy for the 2 smaller sections and draws my eye away from the subject.

I love watching herons. They are so graceful looking in flight. I like how you put these together. Congratulations on a top 10 finish.

7 - Very good, and good use of 'triptych'. Criticism; not much, really only the frame detracts in my opinion, especially the 'gold' thin frame. Very good shots all, nice coloring and good captures, especially 2 & 3. Up to 7 from 6.

A good set of graceful images presented in pleasing earth tones. My only gripe is the brightness of the stroke border - I think the golden hue is nice, but it would be better toned down to a lesser contrast with the background brown.

I like the long upright format, for the slender upright shape of the heron standing, and the use of smaller landscape formats for the flying views.

I think a simple black line border would be more effective.

Very nice. Love your choice of layout. Good Luck. 10

you've prolly gotten a whole load of comments on the brown frame, so I'll skip that. the vertical frame is very good, and suits the bird (heron?) very well. the upper one on the right is interesting but not the lower one.
overall this is good. best of luck.

Wow. Nice, nice, nice composition. I like the browns (including the frame) with the complimentary gray-blue of the long image on the left.

Great captures :)
I love those birds

Cool... Uncommon split of area. Front views to flying heron would add to picture. I know - it's not easy to communicate that to heron :)

This is nice. It is hard to get near this bird. I wish the color was brighter. Good luck.

This is so beautiful! I had a picture somewhat like this using beautiful birds, but I couldn't get the file size big enough to use it -- I wish I knew how you were able to use 3 pictures like this and have such a nice big shot. I absolutely just love this. You did a fantastic job.
