About the Image(s)

This photo was taken a while ago, while at the Zoo, with friends. It was taken with my Olympus EM1, Mark II, 40-150MM. The lighting was certainly uneven but the bird was OK, so I cropped off the left and dodged and burned the areas around the bird in Photoshop.

Your post processing work on the bird really paid off as he is really in focus. Part of the tree to the left of the bird is much brighter than the rest of the tree. I would darken it a bit so that it blends in better.   Posted: 11/19/2020 18:05:09

LOVE IT! YOU got me on composition. My eye leads me right to the eye of the bird. I like how you framed the bird in the picture. Watch out for boarders in a nature image. If you submit professionally, the judges will not like boarders. If you need, then balck or white about 2 pixels (small). I just talked to a PSA JUDGE about this. She states that boarders should not over power the picture.   Posted: 11/24/2020 22:05:28

Thanks, Tom for your comments. Do you think this border is too prominent?   Posted: 11/25/2020 13:15:07
