Aussie Crow by Chris Armytage™

© 2010 Chris Armytage, Fine Art Photography, Daylesford

This cheeky young crow watched me while I photographed the muscovies and mallards by Daylesford Lake, refusing to leave until finally I took his photo. Then he looked me in the eye, nodded his his head and flew off … I hope I’ve done him justice, it was a very special moment!

Thanks so much to each and every one of you for your visit. I value your comments and will reply by visiting and commenting on your work in return.

Photograph taken with a Canon EOS 450D, 55-250 zoom, hand held on full zoom. Layered with textures from my own stock photographs in Photoshop CS3.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.

    Well done, I like the coloring in the background, it creates such a moody feel. And the expression….you have to wonder what this guy is thinking!

    You have made this crow into a magnificent work of art! Such a look in his eye, and I love the story about how this photograph came to be! Crows are extremely intelligent birds. Just watched a great show about them recently. Nicely edited as always!!
