Guess who came for dinner
And went away hungry. He didn't like our birdseed.
Sorry about that white streak on the right. Just as I snapped the shot, a flag started to get in the frame. Taken from inside the house through a cracked open door, bird is about fifteen feet away.

One of the issues I have with my local zoo is that they didn't upgrade their exhibits when they should have and now they are playing catchup. That means many of the animals are in less than perfect environments. This image shows that situation and I think the impact of those archaic conditions on the animals in better shown in B&W than color.

Scavenger of Styles - #6 Internal Frames
Thought that going forward I will try to post both the original image, that is out-of-camera, along with the final edited image. If you think it would be helpful I could also include the setup used to take the shot. That said you probably need some additional info. Because I use a Nikon D40X my raw images are 12 bit and Photoshop Elements 9 will only read 8 and 12. This means when I import a file into Elements it comes in as a 8 bit image with a resulting loss of colors. That means I don't use Elements a lot. Instead I use Nikon Capture NX2. All that explanation means that any questions about editing steps may not get the answers you can use.
This image is from Ft. Osage looking out the General Store window.

day 33 in B&W
was cold and windy today so all we did was go to Safeway to get a couple of things, so this is my photo of the day in B&W td28131
a couple of days ago it was beautiful and warm so we went down to lower elevation by the Colorado River and found some of the wildflowers starting to bloom and yes I did have my macro lens with me.

3 - Black and White - Floor tile in the machine room
Tile has holes in it to allow cooled air from below to enter into the room and cool the machines.
(Don't stare at the picture too long, it'll drive you crazy. Or at least it does me.)
