Bird Photo Competition 2011/12 : Entry Number 383

Judges Comment

Extreme tonal manipulation makes this a striking monochrome image, whilst the placement of the tree and bird result in a powerful composition.

Photographers Comment

Hi, my name is Cindy and I live in Missouri. First of all thank you so much for this honor, I am thrilled. This photo was taken in Potrero Guanacaste, Costa Rica while vacationing last fall. A Canon EOS T2i with a Tamron 18-270mm lens was used. Black and white conversion with Topaz, some lighting and contrast adjustments applied. Again, Thank You
