About the Image(s)

I opportunistically captured these Hawaiian Stilts having a spat. I’m increasingly interested in exploring high impact B&W imaging so this seemed like a good image on which to experiment. The original image had a large area of green foliage reflections across the top of the frame and had lower contrast.
Nikon D5100, Nikkor 18-300mm @300mm, f/11, 1/400s, ISO 500. DXO post processing: clone/repair tool to remove vegetation, tweak tone curve to increase contrast, crop slightly. Comments welcome please.

You may have done well to eliminate distractions, but in my opinion the details of birds are lost. These could add more interest to the image.   Posted: 01/13/2021 04:57:31
