“Flying South” taken 12/31/2014 Denver, CO
Another reprocessing of an old favorite. This was an accidental quick shot that came out a little better than I expected, considering. I was trying to take a closeup of the bird on the wire directly out the apartment window when I noticed geese flying up in the background, swung and tried to widen the angle a little as I shot with no chance to play with aperture or shutter speeds. The result is of course that the geese are out of focus and blurry, but I think it adds to the shot and feel of one bird watching others leave for the winter.
Pretty much identical composition and cropping from my old first attempt, just cleaner and more pop using Lightroom, and a little more dramatic with some added vignette.
