Challenge: Wildlife IV (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS for Canon
Location: Lake Hodges, San Diego
Date: Oct 19, 2008
Aperture: 8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/320
Galleries: Abstract, Birds
Date Uploaded: Oct 19, 2008

Just cropped, auto-levels, auto-colors, resize, USM, save for web.
I had a few bird possibilities for this and these aren't the most interesting of the birds I shot, but I thought the water was very interesting. I further cropped to put the birds on the thirds intersections but didn't like it as much.
Lake Hodges sometimes dries out and grows trees, then on rainy years fills up and the trees eventually die, leaving lots of dead branches.

It is a nice abstract. Just a little tighter crop to focus more on the 'Wildlife' might make this better for the challenge.

I couldn't get a grasp on the content. It just didn't say anything.

Interesting patterns, however, not much of a focus on anything to stand out.
