Default Looking Far Away ...

I couldn't avoid taking a shot of this bird (crow ?) from Sass Pordoi in the Dolomites.



P.S. :
- cropping
- bird selection
- levels correction
- inverse selection
- automatic level
- automatic contrast
- saturation
- beak saturation with the sponge tool brush
- burn brush tool on several areas
- several bird memories left on the railing have been erased with the clone stamp :lol:

Thanx.
Well, though those birds in this place look like being accustomed to human presence it has taken me several minutes of approaching to get that shot ( among other 7 ones which are in my waste basket ;-).

Hmm, nice closeup, but it's not a crow like any I've ever seen (crows don't usually [?] have yellow beaks and red legs). How big was it?

well.....you can find out the hard way and look at his other pictures (the panarama) and compare the size of the people to the railing then coompare the railing to the bird then you will have your answer

If nothing else these birds are survivors

Notice the short legs...easily kept warm by squatting
on them.

Very nice composition, brtsergio!
