Barred Owl - Not the best focus, but only the second time I have been able to photo any in my woods before they fly away.

This great barred owl is from HawkTalk, a raptor rehab center run by Monteen McCord in North Georgia (http://www.hawktalk.org). It could not be returned to the wild and is an ambassador for the center. The two photos, taken in 1998, are from scanned 35mm negatives.

This red-tailed hawk is another bird from HawkTalk, a raptor rehab center run by Monteen McCord in North Georgia (http://www.hawktalk.org) that could not be returned to the wild and is an ambassador for the center. The photo, taken in 1998, is from a scanned 35mm negative.

Processed, Cropped, cleaned up the background, increased the saturation of the sky and then my normal PP action to resize, sharpen and enhance.

Here is a simple, quick trick to use when you have a homogeneous background like the sky. Ole tail-end Charlie here would look better and provide a better crop if he were tucked in a little closer with the other Sandies. Done in Elements.

Simply select Charlie, use the Move tool to put him where you want him, then fill the blank area with the sky color.
