Natures turn…….

Tree Nesting

This was taken early morning.  The wind was gusting and there was a cloud cover.  I was really hoping for some more light but as the clouds thinned it had the effect of a big softbox used by portrait photographers.  I saw these nesting birds in a tree and thought it would make a nice photo.  After reviewing the pic it just didn’t give me a good feeling.  I didn’t like how cropping the picture would make it look.  After coming back to it several times I remembered what Rafael “RC” Concepcion had mention during a Photoshop class.  Apparently he had also been struggling with a photo and how to crop.  He mentioned a real odd crop size he used and I jotted it down in my notes.  Soooo, I tried it and thought it looked pretty good.
