Another reason not to talk with your mouth full (Two Photographs)

Not Exactly Caught in the HeadlightsTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

A cottontail rabbit with its mouth full of moss I shot just off a common trail. Like all wild rabbits its first instinct is to freeze then flee. I got off these two shots before it raced away. You can probably see my reflection in its eye. I tried this in monochrome but the moss disappeared. It’s normal to find situations where what you see when you take the shot is not as prominent when you look at it on the screen (e.g. the moss). This is another example where sharpening of the pixels and the tones can make a difference. Most software has normal sharpening; tonal sharpening or detail extraction comes with third-party plug-ins like Nik, Topaz Lab’s offerings and Intensity Pro.
