Come Fly With Me

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Come Fly With Me
Come Fly With Me
aperture=F/2.8, shutter=1/6400sec, lens=Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8 IS L USM, location= Puncak, Indonesia, name= Hawk,Local name= Elang Bondol.
These is for The bird shot.. While the Back Ground Clouds is taken with The same lens with F/5.6 but shot from the Cockpit at 35 000 Ft. During Cruising in B737 Position Flight ( No Passengers ).
My aim is to get " Artist Imagination " or "Surreal" Dramatic View..
I found its hard to get proper/matching lighting angle, Tone and DOF to get As Close as possible to real shooting condition, ( From these 2 merged Photos.. ) This is one of my favourite.. Done with PSCS2, ie: Selections, extract,USM, NR, Saturation, Hue, Color Balanced, Resize... Thanks for your comment/suggestions.. appreciate very much...
Contest entry: Digital Darkroom.

Hey Birdman!!! Another stunning pic - your digital darkroom is great, but the sky and the bird are awesome to start with :) The colours compliment each other and everything just works beautifully. Congrats on your win :)
