Shade in the Desert II

Uploaded: January 08, 2005


Same as the first except I decreased the brightness of the background a little, increased the saturation in the bird, resized to 480 to bring back the sharpness of my original photo, and blurred the background behind the bird a little. All done in Photoshop.

I'm thinking of re-entering this photo. I played with it a bit. Here's a link to the original submission: Shade in the Desert

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.

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