|This Florida Panther was my most difficult image to deal with because the wire fencing was right over his face.|
You can see the original photos below. The most distracting fencing was in the Florida Panther shot because he was so close to it.
|I found some tropical palm leaves growing nearby and photographed them totally out of focus to substitute as backgrounds later in Photoshop.|
For all the bird portraits I created a selection mask around the head to eliminate the background and substitute one of my out-of-focus palm leaf photos instead. Later I put a vignette around the images to concentrate the attention around the birds face.
|Canebrake Rattlesnake photographed through a Plexiglas window. For this one I had to deal with some odd lighting.|
