Tufted Titmice. I find taking small birds in flight an irresistible challenge! My keep discard is about 1 in 250 of fair shots and 1in 500 a keeper. one of the ways I have a modicum of success is to try to determine where the bird is going, then try to focus a spot where the bird will fly into the predetermined focused spot. I would love to hear from others who also try to take small BIF. Thanks to all ahead of time!

WOW!

I love both photos, but the end result is amazing. It is fun to play with PhotoShop. When one learns how to manipulate a photo, the options are endless. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful result. Waiting for you to have a few more rainy days.


I'm so encouraged by all the positive feedback I've received from this attempt that I'll probably keep going on the idea of enhancing photographs I was previously happy with. But not very many rainy days in SoCal

I like both, in 2 the eyes seem to glow.


Thanks Karin, That was my goal. It was actually surprisingly easy to achieve. I added some vibrance and saturation to the eyes and then just masked them and turned up the brightness. I'm very happy with the results!

A excellent first photo that was turned into a stunning photo with your post processing.


Thanks John, as I grow more proficient with Photoshop, it's interesting to revisit old photographs to see what else I can do with them.

Good to hear. I love it myself, but it's so hard to judge your own work sometimes.

I was pretty wired when I nailed the original shot!

Well, for one, in the rain you could have taken a shot of a wet tiger!

Inspiring...


Interesting comment. I have received so much inspiration from this site and the willingness of everyone to so willingly mentor and share their experience is invaluable. This image is attributable to much of the knowledge I've gained here. Thank you!

Well done.


Thanks Ernie, It was a lot of fun to create it. I ordered a 25" x 20" acrylic, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

My Nightmare Come True..........Dr. Frankenstein I presume........nice work anyway and I like the Eyes as they portray the Beast- Within. Be they ever so-exaggerated....essential for the effect it produced.


Haha, I didn't quite see myself as Dr. Frankenstein, but I did achieve the beastly effect I was looking for, so I'm happy with the result. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
