Challenge: Rule of Thirds (Basic Editing III)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
Location: Truro, Massachusetts, USA
Date: Sep 19, 2005
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: Sep 20, 2005

RAW capture, converted to TIFF.

Hue/Sat, levels, selective color, curves.

Resized, USM, border

Shot at 200mm with polarizing filter, almost directly into the sun.

An interesting lighting/rendition problem. I'd MUCH rather be doing this one in advanced editing, but this will suffice. Shot for the challenge. The cormorant has spread its wings to warm up and dry out after fishing; it's a diving bird. The odd sepcks are other birds flying; they are visible as such in the higher-resolution version but they got lost at 640 pixels.

Good shot. Lot of stuff going on in it. I like the way you did the rule of thirds here with the foreground the middleground and the background. The people in the background far left are good too - your eye is drawn from the boat to the cormorant to the people.

A little busy. What's the subject supposed to be? The boat? The people? The bird with spread wings? The eye really jumps all over the place.

I really don't like that black border. Other than that, It's a good picture.
