Sailor's Delight

I probably took 100 pictures of the sunset one evening at the jetty in Venice, Florida.  So it shouldn't come as too big a surprise that I had not closely inspected all of them.  In fact, I still haven't.

This shot came as a pleasant surprise:

I caught a bird silhouetted against the sunset.

This was shot with a Canon EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens set at 1/1600 sec;   f/4.0;   ISO 100.

Not being able to leave well enough alone, I used Photoshop to normalize the Levels in the water portion.  I then made a copy of the sky, flipped it vertically, and then shrank it to fit over the water, adding a little bit of sunlight reflecting upon the water.  It's subtle, but I'm not sure it's effective.
