Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh New Day

This rooster was very busy letting everyone within earshot know that it was a new day:

ISO 640 50mm f/5.6 1/100

ISO 640 50mm f/5.6 1/100

I took this photo this morning with the thought of using it for this week’s photo challenge which has the theme of fresh.  Nothing like a rooster to remind you that a fresh new day has started.  He doesn’t mind repeating himself if you didn’t hear him the first time.

I took this photo when it was overcast, so I increased the ISO to 640.  I used a fast shutter speed in order to catch the rooster crowing.  I edited it in Photoshop.  It has been cropped.  I also used the healing patch tool in the top right corner to get rid of some animal droppings.  I also used curves to lighten some of the rooster feathers.  Then I sharpened the image.

Cheers!
