Great blue heron in partly shadowed water

Recommended Posts

I've got this shot of a GB wading in partly shadowed water.  Not a great shot, but I want use it to improve my PP techniques.  I know, I should have used a polarizing filter but I did not have it with me.  Does anybody have a suggestion on how to best remove the glare from the unshadowed water?  I am using C1 and Affinity Photo.

Not much I could do to recover this image but here are the steps I used -  you may have better results with more time spent on it

Haze removal
Colour Balance Adjustment
Clone brush around edges
Dodge & Burn



Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
