Carrion Crow over our back garden, not long after dawn; 27 Nov 2011.

I very much like the limited palette of colours but – as is so often the case – I prefer this version to monochrome.  The crow – which looks for all the world like a Photoshop insert! – is purposely positioned away from any of the composition’s visual strong points, but with space ahead to fly into.  Actually quite a reasonably sized bird, it looks so small here against the vast sky and very solid looking clouds:  this is intentional.

Technique: D700 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 200mm; 800 ISO.

    I can’t resist leaving another comment – I love the way you framed this – that heavy cloud….


  2. I love this! The color, the composition, the aspect ratio, the subject—all excellent.

    Love this – and doesn’t the crow look graceful flying in that empty space. Love your composition and the ominous sky at the top.

    Funnily enough, I tried to photograph a crow flying this morning just as fog came down. Not sure of the results – haven’t checked them yet!


  4. I love how the color goes softer, top to bottom. What a capture! And the crow is perfectly positioned. Worthy of a place on the wall with a very fancy frame. 👍🏼

    I really like your choice of format for this one, and that you included the ominous clouds at the top.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
