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!
I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.
