Challenge: Best of 2007 (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Nikon D1X
Lens: Vivitar MF Zoom 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6 for Nikon
Location: San Diego
Date: Sep 10, 2007
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/1000
Galleries: Nature, Animals
Date Uploaded: Jan 18, 2008

This was taken in direct sunlight with an manual focus lens (before I bought a n AF) at 1/1000 second and underexposed, pushed about +1.5EV in RAW editor.

I stand about 3 feet from the feeder focused on the flower and after a while I get a customer. It is all about patience.

Cropped to bird, cloned out distractions, smoothed with Perfectum around 32, USM High Res Normal, a little Lucis, lightened background to soften the rough stucco look.

That's about it. I thank you for your time and comments.

to God the Glory,

Tom

Well captured and neat perspective. Focus is strong but overall the image is a little dull. Still an image I would like to have in my collection. Good Luck. 7.
