Description

I loved these two and wanted to salvage the picture. I only got the one shot because they were off and flying before I had the chance. So I did the following with the original photo:
- Cropped to get the line of the rope I was looking for.
- Clone stamped to get rid of some distracting marks on the wall.
- In Snapseed program used "Drama" filter, chose Dark and increased the Saturation. Also used Center Focus and placed it right on the birds (kept default settings).

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/50 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 800, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 135.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 40D

Great photographers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.
Congratulations for your achievement, November, 2013 Merna

I hope you and your family have a blessed Christmas and New Year!
