I don't like the sun in this picture, but im not sure the best way to crop it out.
If I do crop it out, the bird is looking out of the frame which dosnt look right.
Any suggestions?

Thanks
brendan

I think I would attempt a real tiight 4 by 6 crop. Just the bird on a wire looking at the sun and rotate the shot until the wires were horizontal. Bird on 1/3 vertical sun on 2/3 vertical. The wire the bird is on leave at 1/3 horizontal. Clone out the foregroung trees so you are left with the wire and bird in the darkest tones.Thanks for sharing!

In order to keep the bird, but lose the sun and not have the bird looking out of the frame, you have to turn the bird around. Simple enough in this case.mactek
