That is an embalmed eagle that belonged to my great grandmother. It took me some time to dust it carefully, making sure not to ruin it and then had to find the right place and angle for the shot. The photograph was taken using the macro photo programme so as to capture as much detail as possible using my Nikon Coolpix S4 camera. No zoom or flash was used.
Once transferred onto the computer I gave it a slight blue hue after desaturating it.
I took this picture early in the morning before starting my day. Taken December 2005 at the Sliema promenade in Malta.More Details
Lets start from the very beginning. This was one of my first tries at night photography, having just bought my Nikon Coolpix S4 back in November 2005.More Details
