Congratulations and thanks for entering my challenge. Nothing works better against snow and pine needles than a beautiful red Cardinal.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in my front yard, where there are many types of Pine and Fir trees. It had lightly snowed the previous night and it was a frosty 29 degrees.
Time
It was taken about 12:00 and cloudy, I was on the other side of the tree, squatting on the ground.
Lighting
It was difficult getting the lighting the way I wanted and yet I had very little time. I had to use editing to really sharpen some of the scene and a background blur.
Equipment
Nikon D series camera I have 5, I dont remember.
Inspiration
I love birds and and have quite a few pictyres of them. However, Cardinals are my favorite and every opportunity I get when I see them is wonderful.
Editing
I used editing, specifically clarifying, as some of the edges needed fine tuning. None of the coloring was touched but I did work on the exposure. I try not to do alot of heavy editing.
In my camera bag
In a small bag I carry my Nikon D7000, a macro lens and an 80-200mm zoom lens. I have many more lenses, but I carry the equipment I find the most useful.
Feedback
Dont try to carry more than youre able to. Have your most useful things with you. Take some exposure shots and then take your prime shot.
