Blue Bird
This shot was taken at approximately 100 yards. It was not my camera and not my lens, I was not familiar with either. The day was overcast with heavy backlighting. I compensated for the backlighting by adding +2 stops. This resulted in overcompensation and a washed-out image. I adjusted the exposure, not the color, using Windows Live Gallery. It was also cropped from 5184x3456 pixels down to 971x723 pixels.
