123 - Crowned crane

Where's Dim Sum? #123 - Crowned crane

Dim Sum meows at the crowned cranes as they strutted by with a royal air about them.

This was a tricky shoot. I wanted the DOF focus on a crane, so my camera was locked on one of them and then I waited for the right moment. The cranes didn't take a repeatable path, so it pretty much random luck. The windlight is simple to focus on the colors on the crane. I could have made the environment a little whiter, but I didn't want it to be devoid of color either. The cranes were created by Vinnie Baxter (Animania).
