|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I tried playing around with RAW for the first time using a program called 'UFRaw'. I find it to be quite useful since it has many settings like WB, Contrast, Curves, etc.|
The Hawk was looking away in the other direction most of the time, probably to shield itself from the wind. I shot about 50 frames, exploring different settings in Aperture and ISO, and this was one of the rare ones where it was looking where I wanted it to look.
I found it difficult to control the blue sky colour in GIMP and it was looking quite a drab image, so I converted to B/W since there's not much colour in the bird anyway and I thought the shadows on the branches get a nice feel in grey-scale.
As always, I will appreciate any critiques/tips on this image. Thanks.
