Challenge: Wildlife III (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Redmond, WA

My second challenge here at dpc was the wildlife challenge just about a year ago. It will be interesting to see if I do any better after a year here...
I'm not sure what kind of bird this is, not really being into such persuits. All I know is that they are tiny, and there are a bunch of them out in front of our house that keep eating the grass seed that we sowed last fall.
pp - cropped, sharpend a tad, cloned a bit of branch from around the tail that was distracting, adjusted curves slightly, NI, & resized.

I agree fox sparrow, I haven't seen that race since I left Oregon and forgot how mush yellow is on their bill. I was thinking European species. Great shot. Van

a little contrasty, probably due to underexposure.

The blue of the sky sets the bird off nicely.

WOW!! Excellent perspective. The clarity and color in this picture are perfect, in my opinion. Great job...10

Nice and sharp with great color. Shallower DOF would really make the subject pop, but as the owner of mostly f/4 or smaller lenses I understand the equipment challenges. :)
