This was one of my favorite places to go and watch the crows. It was exciting to kind of feel like I was a part of their lives for a small part of the day.

Specific Feedback Requested

Anything. I was thinking of making this black and white but I kind of like the slight colors in the gravel and background. This was taken in mid morning sun, but pretty harsh, but I like the shadows and potential drama of the photo, what do you think? Any other thoughts always welcome!

Technical Details

Is this a composite: No
Nikon D3400
ISO 100
Slight crop and added a red filter.

Hi, Vanessa. I’ve always found crows difficult to photograph to get them exposed correctly. Perhaps if you cropped a bit off the right, and lightened the bird a bit?

Yes, I think they’re hard too. I took this a couple years back and am getting a tad better. I originally did a tighter crop but I missed having the shadow of the Crow, but maybe that doesn’t really add anything? Looking back I wish I had used a higher iso. When I try to bring up the exposure it washes the feathers out. I’ll have to try the curves feature… Thanks for your inputs!
