End of Day & post of original to show Dennis

This was taken as the sun was setting. The chickens were doing there rituals of dust baths and dozing and scratching in the mulch hills. I thought these two chickens looked like they were walking home at the end of a long day at work!

Specific Feedback Requested

Anything. Does the backlighting look ok?

Technical Details

Is this a composite: No
Nikon D3400
ISO 400
Cropped more than 50%. Adjusted exposure slightly added a slight vignette

I like the lineup of the three hens, Vanessa. To me the rooster is crowding the top of the frame too much and not adding much to the image. The backlight itself works, but the chickens seem to have an awful lot of noise and feel washed out.

Hi @Dennis_Plank yeah, it’s kind of like my other chicken. Dust everywhere because of dust baths and scratching going on! And this was at a distance. Maybe I could have processed it better, maybe I need to just let it go! This is the original…

The dust unfortunately isn’t backlit enough to add drama to the image, just some muddiness. I see why you cropped where you did, but when I look at it, I just don’t see a really good image to pull out of it. Others certainly can have better vision for that than I.
