Great blue heron

I was walking along the docks in Newport, Oregon and photographed this great blue heron all hunkered down, standing in the shallows. I liked the rather high-key, minimalistic look, and so I exaggerated the effect in the computer, creating a simple, almost Japanese feel to the scene. I like this soft, painterly look.
