You have caught the bird well, the colour could do with enhancement though.

Hi Ashley, - welcome to EPZ

You did well to catch the action of the crow with this shot.

It is a little overexposed, and you can see that the bird is a blue/grey colour rather than more black as you would expect. This is easily remedied in Photoshop using the levels adjustment, just drag the left pointer over to the right to meet where the histogram starts.

Ive done this in my mod, and reduced noise a little, - seems you werer using a high ISO value. For future critiques, remember to post you shot settings speed,, aperture, ISO, - you will get better advice if you do this.

Hope this is helpful,


Thankyou for the advice. I took this picture so long ago. I dont remember all the settings I had. But, I will keep that in mind for future reference. I actually edited this picture in microsoft to adjust the colors. I like it like this. Im not sure why. hehe
