It seems like I don’t get to spend much time on the bubble anymore. With my mom not doing her exercise and constatntly asking questions, it seems I’ve lost my intrest in takng images and being on the computer. If she’s not in the room, I’m OK. Anyway, back to “THE BLACK CROW” that was sitting on this post as I was leaving my fishing spot on Grizzly Island in Northern California in the United States of America. It didn’t seem to bother this bird as I was driving past him. I made sure I had my radio turned down so I wouldn’t spook him as I got closer. This shot looks like it’s black and white, but it’s actually a color image. The sun was in the right postion to get just a small amount of light so it gave some detail to an other wise black and detail less bird. I used my Canon EOS 60D with my 75-300mm Canon AF Macro F:3/4.5:1 lens set at 300mm. Unfortunately I still had to crop the image in order to get closer to the bird. I then took it into my Printmaster 11 program to enlarge what was left. Once I exported it back into Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0, I was able to redo the image into something that can actually be used for more than just a post card.
