I darkened the background, desaturated the image (converted to black and white), and cloned out a bush in Photoshop. Here's the original photo.

Congratulations on your great Finalist, Pamela! I enjoyed looking thru your gallery and all the great wildlife images. My favorites are several of the birds (e.g.,sandhill cranes) and the salmon swimming upstream. Good luck in the next round. #4444565

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

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. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
