thanks for the kind words about my previous post. this shot isn't as good as the last, but i figured it would be cool to post them back to back. it was actually pretty difficult to get the bird to look straight at me for the last shot. he preferred to look from the side - as pictured here.

the darkness is achieved by underexposing in the RAW conversion... and jacking the shadows and contrast. then, once in photoshop, i used levels and curves to lighten up the feathers.
