While taking care of laundry, I noticed some birds in my pile of quarters. Sure, we all know about the American Bald Eagle that has graced the “tails” side of quarts for decades beyond memory, but did you know about the Wild Turkey of Louisiana or Great Blue Heron of Delaware?
Photographing shiny objects on a shiny surface with significantly less-than-idea lighting is quite a challenge to keep from getting the ISO noise associated with low-light especially while using a 10mm macro extension tube. I’m rather pleased how this one turned out with minimal processing in the end to get rid of some yellow of the ambient lighting.
