DSC_7660

Using Photoshop, I carefully sharpened the image to draw the audience towards the face, including the eye, beak and textural details in the feathers. The Magnetic Lasso tool allowed me to select the background and reduce saturation, drawing attention to the strikingly bold coloration within the face of the bird, and particularly the bright yellow colour circling the eye. Not only does this capture the audience, but the resolute stare of the hawk holds their attention. A slight crop provided the image with an aesthetic composition, with the eye within the centre point of the top third of the image, allowing the audiences’ view to then flow down the body, following the feathers.
