I wanted to publish something from the swamp. The last few posts were from marshes and I like to mix the environments on any given day.
I also wanted something different. A quick way for me is to press the ‘V’ key in Lightroom to get an idea of how certain images might look with no color. Selecting these were easy, they had almost none to begin with.
This Great Egret was flying by against a bright sky. Both they sky and bird were almost all white.
To start I first ran all three photographs through Topaz DeNoise AI. Noise can show up so a quick cleanup wouldn’t hurt anything. Finally I used Silver Efex my usual monochrome software. Nothing exotic, most B&W photographers use the system.
In hindsight I could have cropped the shots close, the detail is there if you view them large. It never occurred to me 😁

Very nice effect!
Thanks. We have ‘an embarrassment of riches’ with Egrets. Some times just need to play around LOL.
