I just wanted to share this image of a Red-tailed Hawk adult that I photographed in the Centennial Valley of Montana before and after using Photoshop to remove some annoying wires. Typically I leave my images alone and don’t use Photoshop to remove features in the frames but I enjoyed this image so much I played around with removing the wires and the pole on the lower right hand side. Most of the time I merely crop, adjust levels and sharpen my subjects in Photoshop.

I wouldn’t license this Red-tailed Hawk image for print because it has been altered but I like the image without the wires. Someday I hope to get this pose without wires in the frame!
