    I'm glad you like it. I'm considering a bit further editing to remove the tree in his butt so the silhouette is cleaner.

    Today's shot I barely had time to get before the light was gone. I had an appointment at 5:15, so it was almost dark by the time I was done and able to get to this church to make my picture.

    I did a light curve adjustment on this photo. Helped out a bit but not as much as I would like.

    Here is my photo for today...

    Upon getting home and checking on both my monitors (calibrated 2 weeks ago with Spyder-3), I still felt just slightly dark by the beak feathers and more detail might be there.
    I did quick PP in Aperture 3 and sent mikeschmeee a PM with my thoughts.

    Thanks! That's Palos Verdes Estates, CA. The home on the left is worth $5million according to Zillow and the houses on the hills are all $1million +.

    Since it was raining outside, I decided to play around with subtle lighting inside. It took several tries before I finally got something close to what I was looking for. I also wanted a shot that didn't require much editing to clean up, and I at least got that part right.

    Touched it up in CS2 with some light curves adjustments and light shadow/highlight. Looking into taking a intro photoshop class somewhere.

    Getting better? I hope?
