    I would prefer not, Grain is a part of film photography wich I shoot almost exclusivly. So unless otherwise stated I do not want my images run threw noise reduction.

    :lol: That's an oddly specific non-positive sentiment...

    Still, tend to agree. Neat idea, I guess, but it's soooo underexposed.

    I think it works. Just wish you could have got the whole tail.



    But what do I know....

    Under exposing to silhouette at mid day was not the easiest thing for me to acomplish, Despite a big slow lens and as fast as my camera could go I still had to compensate during scanning. I may have gone a click too many on the scanners exposure setting. I'll rescan and see how it looks when I get home tonight.

    I had the same thought about the tail, actually. When I was composing it he was looking downward with his tail straight in the air and I did not antisipate where his tail would be when he came up. That was an error on my part and I knew it happened the moment I hit the shutter. I was so close at this point the mirror smack gave him enough reason leave for a little wile. Another step to the left would have been ideal but.....hindsight.

    Thank you, If no one had chymed up I prolly would not have tried it, I am much happier with this one.


    Meh, they do as they please, it's all part of being wild life, I just need to get to know them a little better is all ;)

    ^^ interesting edit. Seems to work better. I'd love to see the tail and less noise, but what are you gonna do?

    It's not an edit, merely a rescan with a different exposure setting, and Thanks.

    i haven't seen the original scan, but i like this the way it is. I think it's one of your best shots.

    A bird on a wire type shot, It's very much a classic captivity and freedom image. I also think the darker sides add to that feeling of being claustraphobic or trapped

    Plus i like grainy film shots. People seem to see it as something to be "fixed" these days

    Good job
