    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 13/3/11 "DARK BACKGROUNDS"

    Some great interpretations of last weeks theme, well done all contributers

    This week we are looking for images with dark backgrounds. Maybe its a shot at night, maybe a dark shaded area behind the bird or perhaps some dark water surroundings.

    This one is an example of flash as "main light". A nice close up of this Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) at Maroondah Reservoir, VIC 2007.

    Taken at Baringhup Central Victoria.
    With those silent wings chasing him through the dark to get a photo was hard work.
