I was sitting at a picnic table when this sparrow popped up next to me. I already had my camera in hand so I slowly turned around desperately hoping I wouldn't frighten it away. I'm using an SLR which was set to 'full sun' and 'dynamic focus area' instead of the most ideal setting which would have been 'shade' and 'closest subject.' That would have allowed me to blur out the people of the bench behind the bird focusing entirely in the bird. I was a little bummed that I didn't have the time to change the settings but as it turns out a bit of fiddling with the contrast, light fill and tone took these images from warmish, brightly coloured photos to something a bit more suited for later use in my collages!The 1st and 3rd images look quite good 'large' if you want to take the time to click on them and view them in the next size. These will be printed on to paper or transperancy paper at a later date.
