Once Upon A Midnight Dreary

View on black please.


I thought I'd go all scary again. I was watching the Prague sunrise from the Charles Bridge (Karlův most) and had just changed to my 50mm to get some different shots.


Suddenly this bird swooped in and I rushed to catch it as it landed on this statue; one of the many beautiful statues that run along the bridge. Luckily there were some interesting clouds in the background to make it even spookier.


There has been very little done to this photo, save for the monochroming with Nik Silver Efex Pro and some contrast / curves in Potatoshop.


As this is a dark photo, it looks much more mysterious on black. (Press L). Bonus points for the first person to tell me where the title came from... (No googling!)


No group images in comments please.



I actually had no idea it was Friday 13th when I posted this, so it's a really spooky coincidence...
