I had to include this photo to show you the remarkable power of Photoshop to recover a photo from a photographer’s mistake. I had been taking shots of Boobies with my camera in manual mode. I used settings to take into account the very light background of the sky and the ocean. When I was finished, I forgot to take it out of manual mode; not a good idea. The next morning Diana and I drove to Waimea Canyon. As we were driving up to the summit, this Erkel’s Francolin suddenly appeared right next to the road. It was early and still not very light but I quickly stopped, grabbed my camera, and took about a dozen photos before it walked off into the brush. I was really pleased because this was one of the birds I had wanted to see and I had been able to get full frame shots and some great poses. Then I reviewed the pictures on my camera screen and was really disappointed because all I saw was a black screen, like the left side of this picture. The camera was still set for bright sky. Depending on how your monitor displays this, you might just barely see the bird. Fortunately, I decided to keep the photo and try working with it in Photoshop. After adjusting the exposure and brightness, I was amazed that I got a pretty decent shot of this bird after all.
