    Annemarie Davis is a very good friend of mine, and an amateur bird photographer of East London.
    I take photographs of birds, but she is in a different league.
    Here is a small collection of some of her work.

    I have a particular liking for underexposed backgrounds, your stalk is a great example there of.

    If I can also comment on the crop, I find the underexposed stalk perfect to my eye. That's how I would do it.

    Forme me, the bottom stalk is just that little bit to far to the right.

    There are no hard rules in cropping, it is what works best for the particular photo. But there is something that I believe is called rule of thirds which can also be 5th that say it is more pleasing for people if the main object/subject is on one of these sections of the image.
    I might be wrong about the underexposed concept as well but I do not think any of the original photos where under exposed, itís a photoshop filter that was applied which also give an idea of a non full frame lens mounted on a full frame sensor called vignetting or something like that!??
    But this work is great and deliver the story line with the crock in the background.

    Hi Birdranger. You may be right.

    I would also like to add that results can also be achieved by using exposure. Use spot metering on the bird and not matrix metering (Nikon) and the camera ignores the ambient light, reading only the bird which is white. This results in an exposure based on the whites only and not an average reading of the entire frame, lowering the overall exposure of the frame, producing the darker background.

    It is generally only achievable when the subject is contrasted against the background.

    This is a form of negative exposure photography.

    Recently did a fair bit of it in Kruger producing similar results.

    Great photo!!
    Yes can be done with camera settings but then the background will be dark like your photo not only the corners, or am I wrong?

    100% correct. Only upon re-looking at the original image did I notice the vignetting.

    Thats what makes our hobby so amazing . It's creative and allows us to produce great images in different ways. I also personally follow the rule of 3rds as you highlighted above. Also didn't notice the croc. Long day and small image on the phone. My bad. I retract my earlier statement about the position of the stalk. The original image does convey the scene well.
