The resident birds take our crazy Nor’easters in stride…I wish I could be this nonchalant about a storm that dumped 2 feet of heavy snow, downing branches and snapping my Coral Bark Maple in half . 😦
I shot this from the shelter of my sunroom before I had to bundle up and head out to shovel. This is going to be a long winter… 😦
Update…I lied in my response to Karma’s comment! Well, not really, I simply forgot that shooting in RAW means all the color data for the image is available even when the camera is set to ‘monochromatic.’ I just need to process the image through Capture NX to retrieve the color version.
So, per Karma’s request, here is the color version of the image, sans vignette:
Personally, I prefer the b&w version as it mutes the background and focusses attention on the bird. Also, for me there is not enough ‘color’ going on here to make any sort of statement. 🙂
