Artist's Description

Two couples nested and visited my feeder, all in my backyard. They’re beautiful, colorful, and fun to watch.
_______
FATHER FINCH
Little father; little man-
raise those babies while you can!
Nesting time is too soon gone-
With all your chicks out on their own.

I had to do a great deal of work on this photo because the light was coming the wrong way as taken. First and Second, done in Pic Pub 10, I cropped the bird to bring him into close-up view, and sized the work. I also used to “lighting studio” in the same program. It didn’t work the way I wanted it to, so I switched to Photoshop and did the lighting, plus added a mild black framing in Photoshop. This was a good photo to start out with, just too much shadow on the side facing the viewer.
Find the problem first, then fiddle around with as many ways to fix it as you can.
