Hi Nikki...Thank you for the compliment but I did not place the crow. This is created from an actual shot I got of a crow flying towards the moon. The original has a lot of noise which is why I used effects on it.

All the better :) I misread your description. I know you have done other composites with a moon and thought this was one. I'll read more carefully next time.

I just used the camera as it came...it has great telephoto capabilities out of the box. I took the original and used a paint daubs filter on it in Photo Shop then a tint with color preservation on it in Google Picasa2. Thank you for the wonderful compliment Kathy!

You definitely have an eye for what makes a picture that captures one's attention. Hopefully you will continue to pursue your love because you have great potential. I love your work as it is far from standard. You have the ability to recognize a great shot right off, and you have that must element in photography, PATIENCE.

Keep shootin'

Thank you so much Dianna! Crows are one of my favorite animal and I felt so lucky to catch this one while shooting the moon. You are so kind to give me such a wonderful comment!

Oh, Marta! Another kindred spirit! I love crows and they have gotten a really bad rap, you know? Have you, which I am sure you have, heard their most melodic musical 'chatter'??? People used to think I was crazy when I told them they had a very beautiful chatter until one of my family members actually heard them and was totally shocked by the beautiful sounds!! I am not sure I have a favorite, as I love all creatures so very much! (except roaches, maggots and mosquitos, oh yea, and people who are a-holes, LOL!)

I totally agree with you Dianna!!! I have a huge murder of crows who claim my land as theirs (which is fine by me!). They are constantly on the prowl for birds of prey and actually protect my ducks and chickens from attack. I love their sounds and their beauty! It's nice to know someone else appreciates them like I do.

Oh yeah...I too, hate most pesky bugs and A-Holes SUCK!!!

I hope you do it! I've been slaving away at Halloween images all month and POOF. You do one of a crow that can double as a BAT and it's way better than ANY of mine already! Please enter it! It's spectacular!

Thank you so much Laura...I really appreciate your enthusiasm!!! This shot has always been a favorite of mine because it happened so naturally. I was shooting the moon one evening and the crow just flew right into the perfect spot. I love your idea and I think I will do a few adjustments and enter it for a halloween image. Take care...Marta
