    Anyone interested in images of real death but in a artistic manner ? , I photograph found dead animals when I find them and some are of a fairly graphic nature but it is the ability to view things you would not normally have the opportunity to view in detail if the animal was alive that attracts me . None of my photographs are of animals I have injured or harmed and in fact I won't disturb the animal in anyway to enhance composition or any other element because I can't bring myself to touch dead things ...just like looking . This image is a fairly "safe" one to start with in case anyone is offended and to test the waters , any feedback both positive or negative will be most welcome.

    In fact I have images of dead animals as well, some half de-composed already. But I never ever posted any of those and normally I do not show them when doing a presentation. Most are too graphic to 'enjoy'

    I've got a couple, one reasent. I'll process and share the newest one for the web and display it.

    The bird looks like it was washed thouroughly. Little odd to me.

    This was found on a boat ramp after a high tide , hence the somewhat clean look .

    Poor bastard was murderilated, not sure whether it was cat or another bird but this was definately not just a roll over and die death.

    Thanks Chiller !

    This is an image I posted on another forum and got hammered for it by a lot of puritanical self righteous posters who had bible quotes in their "signatures" . I blew the highlights on purpose to at least get some feedback on the technical side but they couldn't get past they couldn't get past the content .

    Not the best image, but holy crap this thing stunk like death. Must have been recent, as the eyes were still in there. :er:

    One very dead bird. Again, no light in this place and I almost trod on it.
