  1. Ya know, I was thinking the same thing.

    Maybe he could post the original with no conversion? Or at least a jpeg
    with the EXIF data still in place. Though that can be manipulated too.

    Oh for goodnes sakes, here is the original jpg from the 20D. The only
    editing here was to resize for Pbase.

    To me it looks like a 'straight' shot with no compositing or similar
    digital manipulation. Just curious, what is it about the image that
    looks fake to you? Typically it's when the light is coming from two
    different directions or when you can see the edges of the composited
    selection, but I don't see anything like that here.

    Nice job, Robert, especially at 1/25 sec.

  3. Thanks,

    Besides the unorthodox setting I think what may be throwing people off is
    the contrast in sharpness between the bird and the back ground especially
    round the edges. Thing is that stand of trees is quite a long way away from
    the statue so the DOF while looking exaggerated is authentic.

    It was a lucky shot, no doubt about it but it's still a good shot IMHO.

    Sometimes it does not matter how good photographer you are, or what
    equipment you have, its about being in the right place at the right time
    that counts. Of course having the right equipment and skills enhances your
    ability to take avantage of that good fortune. I like the shot.

    Why do you take photographs of photographers?

    Why do you ask stupid questions - because you can?

    I've lucky shots like that, too. They usually weren't as interesting a
    subject but, still, there's no reason to me to look at that photo and
    surmise that it was photoshopped.

    Why would an intelligent person answer a stupid question except to confirm
    their inadequacy.

    That's a mockingbird. They aren't very shy about people, and apparently about statues either.

    for very long, flying here and there.

    Jeez, I was just curious. Never cared if he cheated. Whatever that means.

    Love you.
