Sagebrush Goldfinch

sepia goldfinch3

Friends, I often struggle with backgrounds that conflict with my subject or are too distracting.  This little goldfinch is a good example of this problem.  All the little branches and twigs were helpful to describe his habitat but distracting cause they all lead out of the frame.  So I am using a sepia toned background to dull the background and bring the little bird and his dinner plate as the undisputed subject of the image.  Do you like? til Tomorrow MJ

  1. Of course I like it, but I’m not as concerned about distractions as you -the habitat is important too, and this shot leaves plenty of room on the right for the bird to fly off.

  2. I like it. It certainly makes me focus more on the bird.
