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.
