Portrait of a Rattle Snake

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Portrait of a Rattle Snake
Portrait of a Rattle Snake

Congratulations to all the Spetember winners, terrific work!

I did a little more work on this one and I guess like all works in progress, I'll keep at it until I get it right. Made adjustments to color, contrast, brightness, highlights, cloned out a distracting portion to the right of the snake's head and added a border and name.

Still busy today, but will return to commenting tomorrow.

I sure wouldn't want to be that close to a rattle snake even through glass.
