Black-Throated Sparrow


The birds are slowly becoming more used to my presence and the sounds of the camera. Here's another Black-Throated Sparrow that wasn't much bothered by me taking it's picture. This image is cropped about 25% from the orginal frame and I used Photoshop's "Sharpen More" filter to make the definition of the feathers "pop". Canon 20D - 1/800th, 300mm @ f/10, ISO 400

I like the contrast in colors between the bird and the background.

Thanks!
I have t say there is little I don't like about this image. The colors, the contrasts, the lighting, the sharpness of the bird's feathers and the branch that it's perched on. My only complaint is that I had to crop it a little to get the composition just right. But then again, if I were closer, I might not have gotten it at all.

True Dat! When I've photoshopped a print and I'm so happy with it, I just want to share it w/ someone. Isn't this blogging business a great way to do that?!?
