I always like the forms and textures created by winter Himalayan Blackberry thickets and this Chickadee was nice enough to pose in one while we were at Ridgefield on Monday. Unfortunately, the Downy Woodpecker that we originally stopped for didn’t come out very well.
Any issues with the processing? There is only one minimal clone area as I decided to leave the messy background alone.
Does all this clutter work?
7Dii, Sigma 150-600 C @ 468mm, beanbag on car window, f/9, 1/1600, iso 1600, manual exposure. I was somewhat underexposed, so I brought this up about 2/3 stop in processing. Cropped from a horizontal original to a 12.5 MP vertical of arbitrary proportions.
