Long Neck

Uploaded: October 07, 2006


f6.3, 1/100, ISO 400. Taken at Safari West in Santa Rosa, CA. I am resubmitting this at the suggestion of classmates in a current Betterphoto class. I changed the composition by cropping it. I lighted the dark areas in Elements to bring out the eye area. I also think I originally had oversharpened it so I backed off the radius a bit. Critique (even brutal ones) appreciated.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
