    Well, here is my first addition to the darkside.
    Had a lucky shot today at the bird demo, when this vulture closed his 3rd eyelids. When i saw it, i thought "DARKSIDE" immidiatley.
    Here it is:

    Wow wow wow!! Great image. Very darkside. :thumbup: :fangs:

    Looks a little noisy, I guess low ligfht and high ASA? hope you dont mind but I ran it through Neat Image, what do you think? If you'd rather I'll take it down, just say...

    I am absolutely loving this shot! Dark indeed! I prefer the noise - makes it more dark to me. Great shot!

    thanks for the comments :)
    Normally you dont see the third eyelid. It just closes it very fast, to keep the eye moist. Was pure luck that i had it in the shot.
    I added the noise myself, thought it would make it more darkside material. The sun was shinning and low ISO, so no noise on the original picture. But you can leave it in here, i dont mind.
    Anyways, thanks again :)

    Ahh, my bad :blushing: That's why neat image worked so well! Hahah!

    I think I'd prefer monocrome noise rather than colour noise but it's just my personal taste. Whatever, it's a fantastic image. Someone happened to be looking over my shoulder at work as I had this on screen and she went 'Eeewwww, what's that?' So as a darkside image, it has the desired effect :mrgreen:

    hehe, well i kinda did well then eh.
    I was playing with the monocrome button in PS, but i didnt see a big difference. So i kept it unchecked, must have been my untrained eye then.
