This is one of those times when a mistake actually turned out to make a pretty good picture IMHO.
I was taking pictures of Osprey in flight when one circled around to land – but on a pole that required me to face into the sun to see. I knew the overwhelming brightness of the sun would cause the Osprey to be underexposed but thought maybe I could salvage it by bringing up the shadows in post-processing.
Instead, I didn’t hardly touch it and in fact darkened it a bit. The end result is a pretty cool picture of an Osprey as it flares up right before touching down. What do you think?
