I usually take pictures of the birds when I'm out at the local refuge, but this time I took my 1969 Firebird 400 (w/ 455) so I could take a few pics there.

Nice 'Bird in the always popular "Cop Catcher Yellow" color!
Of them all, I'd like #7 best with a bit of PS work.

Thanks. It's the original color for this car.


Are you saying it needs more PS? The last 6 images were blended into two exposures.

You used a tripod? Then why ISO 800?

As for "more PS", I don't think it needs a lot. I'd like to see the color of the Bird brought out more, kind of like this one of the "Beast." (external link)

Also note that the sunset is farther to the right in my shot, which brings out the highlights in the side better.

I used a tripod. I switched to a higher ISO to try and get the birds in flight overhead without blurring at sunset and after.

Not sure if I could do that here because "my" sunset was behind the car. I can see if I can re-do it because I remember that link and wanted to do something similar. If not, I guess I have to go back....lol! It's a 15 minute drive.
