day 227 - sometimes it feels good to break the rules

went to the owl flying display on wednesday. It was really challenging as it was under tree cover, raining and quite dim so tack sharp flying shots were few and far between. Also as we were in a fairly close group, uncluttered backgrounds were almost impossible and most shots had peoples heads in them. Was pushing 1000 iso to keep the shots sharp.

 

I abandoned the rule of thirds on this one, and desaturated the entire image, except the eye as I wanted all focus and concentration on the eye.

 

Absolutely stunning creatures.

NB: I'll post some of the flying ones later once I've sorted last weeks shots.
