Cormorant

This is a composite image using a portrait of a cormorant with a really bad background and a beautiful sunset over Lake Weir near my home.  I don't do a lot of these because I generally prefer to take images as I find them.  I used Photoshop Elements 8 to do this and it only took about 15 minutes.  The cormorant was shot with a little bit of fill flash and I realize that the photo is a little unnatural with the mix of frontlighting and backlighting.  When I look at this photo I simply regret that this bird didn't pick a better background when he posed for the portrait.
