Above is a photo that I shot in our garden last summer. The husband of my mother has chickens, and they did breed. The result was a small gang of very cute baby chickens. I shot many photos that I didn’t edit yet but the photo in this post is a nice close up shot that I took with my Tamron 70-300mm lens. I also edited the image a bit. I cropped the image, added a lens vignette effect so that your eyes are more focussed on the bird, and I played with the contrast values because the original had this flat appearance. You can find more bird photos on my blog.
