Crowmageddon, that is. I really enjoyed working on these photos, starting with some of the Lightroom presets. Shirley mentioned, and she's so right, that photos of black animals or items are difficult because you can't see the detail. Don't be afraid to change the colors a bit, not because they're perfectly correct, but because it makes the subject(s) stand out more. If you have an editing program that allows you to lift the shadows, do that. It will make certain features stand out that you want to see a little better. Crows are such a great example because they have cool features and pretty feathers. These two were in the parking lot at Piedras Blancas where everyone watches the elephant seals (more photos coming on that too). They were used to all the people and of course were hoping for snacks. They let me get close enough to capture some photos without scaring them off.
That's my little photo share of the day. Those of you who are still suffering from this very very unusual Winter, stay safe and warm today. And enjoy your Tuesday.
