    BackgroundS for Currawong.

    This is I think my best image of a black bird. It was scavenging around our campsite. I had discounted it because of the dark close background, but wondered if a better background may lift it. Logically I started with a lighter BG for a black bird, then just for variety tried a darker black and thought the result was quite good. What do you think?
    cheers marty.

    Hi Marty, I prefer the 2nd with the darker background. It's making the subject appear lighter so the eye is naturally drawn to it.

    Gazza, so do I, which I find interesting and counter intuitive. Logically, black should stand out best against lighter colours.
