So, today I went to a place where I know there is a blue heron living. My intent was that I could get a photo of him in the water with his reflection. As I was walking up the creek, I saw the damn thing take off about about 30 yards in front of me. He must've heard me coming. Sooooooo, I had to settle on a picture of some wood in the creek (or as we say around here... crick). I'm hoping to get a meh score. In RAW conversion, all I did was warm up the temp and sharpen. Then, I added a border in PSE and resized. Tada! I'm hoping to get a "meh" score. It's a good photo with sharpness, color, and composition (I think), but I'm sure there will be some spectacular photos in this challenge!

A nice mix of warm colors. I do however see some parts of the image that are blown out which seems to take away from the serenity of the photo a bit.
