Flip the Bird When the Weather Doesn't Agree With You !
This is one of the reasons I like to shoot RAW files with my camera.
I have plenty of RAW photos so, when it's too cold, windy and cloudy outside, I stay inside and, flip birds.
Today, I decided to try something different with this Grey-faced Buzzard Eagle.
First, I created a JPEG that was overexposed by a value of +2.
Then, I made another one, underexposed, by -2.
The photos were re-named IMGP6670L, 6670M and 6670H for Low, Medium and High.
Blended together in Adobe Photoshop Elements, I got an HDR photo.
It seemed like the photo would look better with the critter flying from left to right.
All I did was hit Image, Rotate, Flip Horizontally and it was done.
I flipped the bird !
Working with an older version (Elements 8) I'm looking at doing an upgrade.
Right now, they are all the way up to Elements 11 and have plenty of new features.
