Blackbird (black and white)

Blackbird images I think – perhaps unsurprisingly – suit a monochrome approach, the bird's subtle markings brought out beautifully when allowed the certain sheen that black and white can achieve. The accidental vignetting was achieved by shooting through camouflage netting!

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/1,000th sec, f/7, 400mm at ISO 500. Distance to subject: > 4m. Shot in RAW, converted to greyscale, levels adjusted, converted to RGB, then a 7% blue filter applied to counteract warm tones.
