Caught this little chick primping in the mirror during our photo shoot. She was probably just making sure everything was still in tact after being carried off by the puppy (LOL)!! She was rescued and moved safely to higher ground.

Adjusted levels and saturation and added the Ambience filter from VP.

Michelle R. Kovach March 08, 2005

This is too cute Marcie! And not a feather out of place after her near death experience with Freckles! LOL
Great job with the mirror! It's a very cool idea! I've used a mirror before on some of my shots & sometimes its hard to get just the right angle without bouncing the flash off.
Nicely done! Very creative! LOL
Too funny!
Have a great day!

Marcie A. Fowler March 08, 2005

Thanks so much for your comments Stacey, Tammy, Jessica, Dolores, Michelle, and Mary!!!

And for those of you who complimented my sense of humor thanks so very much!! That is greatly appreciated.

Michelle . . . I didn't use flash . . . just the light from the kitchen window. I have no luck using flash with the mirror.

I had an incredibly difficult time convincing Freckles that this little chick was not a play toy for her. It chirps and even now when she hear's it chirping she comes running. Great way to get her to come to me when she doesn't want to listen any other way (LOL!! #1156525

Laurence Saliba level-classic March 08, 2005
