Adobe Lightroom Summer Beach Bird Cam. Before & After

by Andrew Smith January 08, 2011 3 Comments

This image has a great perspective and I love the simple collection of elements. I used my Nikon D3 and the 70-200mm f2.8 lens (no it wasn't attached to another bird) I managed to lean over a cliff edge to get this shot, it has a great effect - almost like I'm flying. I did some pretty simple processing on it, just enough to pull the colors out.

I really like these before/after postings. I’m very uneasy doing so much processing to photos, not being comfortable about judging what’s just over-processing instead of improving a photo. I can use a lot more exposure to what the possibilities are. Thanks for posting these.
