Bird Cage
Posted By: rajchat, 12-26-2011, 12:31 PM

This is my first attempt to post a photo here. The photo was taken yesterday at Chicago Brookfield zoo, where at Children's zoo I saw this bird cage with a very large lock on it. It was a very bright day outside, so I attempted to capture the harshness of the situation with the silhouette of the bird against the blue sky and trees. I wanted to capture at least one bird flying in the cage but could not time it after several attempts.

Please provide your opinion.

The silhouette/exposure is nice, but there is no real focal point, and also the lines are a bit crooked.
