Egrets Tones and Textures

Today I found myself playing around with this photo of an egret I took recently. I love this bird  and the photo I took, he was just so still taking in his moment.

For this first one I really just lightened and gave a little contrast, then cropped the photo. 

 This one I changed to Black and White, cropped and lightened a bit.
 For this one I added a vintage feel and lomo, I like this one.

And lastly for this one I cloned out the background to give more of the bayou feel and added a texture from A Rural Journal called Victoria, @ 88% Soft Light.

Thanks for stopping by,
