2307 – La Gazza Ladra

Here’s one image of a lone magpie resting on a tree across the street. Thursday morning it sat there long enough for me to take several images.

No images were taken on Saturday though. I was busy buying a new washing machine, installing it and getting rid of the defective old one ๐Ÿ™‚

The Song of the Day is not exactly a song at all. It’s the overture to Gioachino Rossini’s opera “La Gazza Ladra”, famously used by Stanley Kubrick in “A Clockwork Orange”. If violence disturbs you, I suggest you’d better avoid the two scenes from the movie where it was used so brilliantly.

    1. Well, the sky was pretty problematic. The camera’s exposure automatic had underexposed the sky, with the result of a beautiful sky gradient. Lightening the image destroyed the sky, thus I had to work selectively and be careful not to create unnatural halos. Let’s say that there is much more work in this image than the result would make you expect ๐Ÿ™‚
