About the Image(s)

Our regional electric company has been upgrading their power distribution lines. I saw a local raven checking out this new perch, and got the shot with a long reach Nikon P900. Poe's famous poem was the inspiration for the title.

Settings: 600 mm (full frame equivalent), 1/500 s, f/6.3, ISO 125. Processed in Silver Efex Pro with Fine Art High Key preset and soft vignette.

Nice capture, Allen. I like the contrast between the power line components and the pole and raven. The various loops and diagonals interact nicely as well.   Posted: 01/14/2021 16:03:18

I have many shots of birds in nature, this is the only one with an industrial setting.   Posted: 01/16/2021 12:04:06

Allen, I really like your conversion as the color image has little interest. My only suggestion is to crop some off the right side so that the pole and bird are no so centered.   Posted: 01/15/2021 07:09:27

Every month this group reminds me to look past the colors and see lines, shapes, and textures.   Posted: 01/16/2021 12:06:22
