Ibis Flight-1517

Shot in the late evening in the Big Cypress swamp and processed with Lightroom 4 beta version. for some reason this image has garnered an unusual ammount of attention on my Facebook page. I'm posting it here to see if it gets a similar reaction.

New Image, difficult contrasty image. Handheld, 450mm lens, slow shutter speed, high ISO, white birds against a cloudy sky. A nightmare of a shoot to balance both during and post production handled nicely thanks to Lightroom 4 Beta version.
