I was on a trail at an Audubon property when I saw this Red-shouldered Hawk. I snapped a couple pictures, but I was not impressed with getting a compelling image. It flew away, so I followed it to see if I could find something more satisfying. That was when i found the raptor on a fence post eating a meal. I moved closer and into the best position for a great clean background. After going through over 100 shots, this emerged as the most compelling in my opinion.
Post Type: Photography
Mixed Media: Minor | This was photographed raw, so I had to make minor adjustments to accurately reveal its natural contrast, highlights, and shadows while modestly enhancing texture, clarity, vibrancy, and saturation. Some cropping , but no image alteration or background manipulation.
