DPCO4 - week 7 - team globetrotters

kind of the wrong time of year to find much interesting wildlife around here. We call it mud season - for the most part the snow has melted - the ground is thawing and muddy. not much has started growing yet - and most of the birds haven't returned yet. so i worked with what i could find.

shot into the sun with yet to turn green under brush about 20 feet away as the background.

slightly straightened and slightly cropped.
in PSCS3 - curves > shadow/highlite > fade shadow highlite > reduce noise > sharpen full size ( 300,0.6, 4 ) > resize > sharpen ( 125, 0.6, 4 ).

back in 2004 i entered the march free study with a photo of a chicadee on this same post :)
