Once in a while:
A vertical shot just works. We try to "follow the lines" for our cropping and composition, so I think a horizontal in the case would not have worked... mainly since I took the photograph in vertical! No more room on the left side.!!
To get the right angle on this bird, so the purple iridescent feather show the color is sometimes difficult, thanks to this beauty for helping me out here! Maybe a touch too warm?
All natural light, and 100% "is what it is" backgrounds in my images.
I have never "switched" a background, and would not even know how!
Thanks for looking and appreciating the natural world.
