With a litttle bit of luck and magic.

This morning on the way to church, I was stunned to see a beautiful hawk resting gracefully on a hay bale. I've seen this before, but in a different place. I wonder if they like hay:) I couldn't get a good shot because my stopping the car startled him and made him fly to a farther hay bale so the resulting image is not sharp, but I still think it was a beautiful sight and with a little bit of luck and magic (photo editing) I came up with this:Also, I was practicing some shots at church and they were all coming up crummy. Lighting in there is awful and I really need to practice working with poor lighting conditions. But again, with some perseverance, I was able to conjure up this shot:
Everyone hopes to get that perfect shot, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. I love that photo editing can help you save some shots you think are worth saving. It's not was you saw when you were shooting, but it's just as special because you helped create it.

These are great. The hawk photo is one of those where the experience is more beautiful than the shot..been there a million times! but you have that beautiful occurence etched in your memory. The flowers are really well done. Doesn't seem that the lighting bothered you in that photo.

Wonderful photo of the hawk! I'm so glad you took the time to stop and shoot! :-)

The flower image is lovely. I really like the sepia tone with just one flower in color. I, too, love the creative freedom the digital darkroom affords us. Nicely done!!!

I was thinking that the Hawk was sitting on the hay bale waiting for and rabbits or field mice that might be in the area..Very dramaitic
