Posted By suleesia : How I play and work at the same time.
Camera set up next to my desk poised to shoot out the window. Mocked branch set on balcony wall, place some rice (as bait) on top of wall and wait...
Balcony wall to camera distance appr. 12 feet.
Lens 200mm or longer.
1. Decreased shadows by 30%, increased highlights by 10%.
2. Selected the entire shot, sharpen by 2 pixels at 100%.
3. Selected the sky, reduced noise.
4. Added frame, this was just for fun, it did not need it.
