RED SHOULDERED HAWK
This is truly a daily shot...taken just a little while ago! Poor guy looks pretty cold and hungry...BUT NOT IN MY YARD, PLEASE! I used the Topaz Adjust again, because I like the watercolor effect it creates. (It makes me the "George" of nature photography, maybe?...lol) But I do like experimenting with filters a lot.
I made the mistake of underexposing the image...hence to my huge disappointment the image is awfully grainy. But when the bird is there, I just do the best I can...right?
Here's the original...not too bad...any suggestions?? Seriously, critique away...I need to learn! :-) http://mom4squirrels.smugmug.com/gallery/2398293_NM4ud#452315912_PD33D
