Give me some

By Keith-Mckevitt  
Taken in Turkey, there was a bit of a commotion from one of the birds because his freind wasn't sharing his crisp with anyone. He realised after he had shreiked for ages that there was plenty to go around.
Taken on Nikon D70 using the P setting at 200 iso. Saturated slightly using CS.

Great shot Keith - A very melodramatic feel from our feathered friends, although slightly saturated the colourisation looks blob on. - click

kjm Re: your question relating to drop shadow's.
I use photoshop 7 so these details relate to that program. Drop shadows look best on a white background or else they look unnatural. The point of a drop shadow is to give the image the look of hanging on the wall in a gallery. Remember to add a pixel stroke (line) before adding the drop shadow. Rename background layer by double clicking on it in the Layers Pallet and saying OK to the new name. Double click on layer and choose Layer Style > Drop Shadow Style. Create your angle, opacity, distance, spread, size of shadow. Add canvas space to the image in the directions of the drop shadow that is slightly greater than the size of the shadow (Canvas menu is under Image > Canvas Size). The drop shadow will then appear in that added canvas area. Hope that helps. Regards Keith

Love all the Jay shots but I think this is my fave. I am crap at bird shots so appreciate the skill and timing in this one.

Superb capture - get jays in our back garden sometimes but one glimpse of me and they're off - very timid - excellent composition and timing with just enough sense of movement.

Really good shot Keith, I love it. well done
26 Jun 2005 2:04PM
Good One!

Brilliant shot Keith . My mum has a family of jays that visit her garden but they are never there when I visit (could be something to do with a 9 year old son & 1 yr old black cat that go with me!)
I live in hope...
