    Wow, I like this. Fave
    But was the background that distracting? How about adding a sky?

  • This was a tricky photo for me…and I’m not a whiz with Photoshop or I’m sure I could do better. It was a chance capture and it was very dark without any contrast or detail. I adjusted it as much as I could to bring out the detail in the birds but lost the sky, as you see. Everyone seems to like the photo but I’ve never been happy with it. I must learn more post processing tricks….and probably shoot in RAW more…still learning. :)

    I love this photo as is. With the background being the way it is, it leads the eye directly to the subject, which is the Ospreys.

  • Thanks, Susan…it certainly was a dramatic moment anyway…and I’m glad I was there to catch it. :)
