here is another view of this great Bald Eagle., I took about 20 shots, through a tight cage at the Toronto Zoo, and came home with a few good views. Nikon D70 2005/09/19 04:19:19.1 JPEG (8-bit) Fine Image Size: Large (3008 x 2000) Lens: 70-300mm F/4-5.6 D Focal Length: 300mm Exposure Mode: Manual Metering Mode: Center-Weighted 1/400 sec - F/8 Exposure Comp.: 0 EV Sensitivity: ISO 1600 Optimize Image: Sharp White Balance: Auto AF Mode: Manual Flash Sync Mode: Not Attached Auto Flash Comp: 0 EV Color Mode: Mode Ia (sRGB) Tone Comp.: Auto Hue Adjustment: 0° Saturation: Normal Sharpening: High Image Comment: Long Exposure NR: Off original from the camera modified with ps, I created 5 layers.. background, main head, beek, eye and a colour adjustment layer. On all layers I tuned the levels, colors, saturation, added 1 sharpen to the eye and beek, added 3.3 p gaussian blur to the background. Also, i ajusted the shadow/highlight on the head. I used an eraser tool around the head to blend the scratchy line i made with the lasso tool. any comments are welcome., thanks everyone.
