Animal portraits make up a great deal of my portrait photos. I find them much easier to work with and more colorful. Rufus is no exception being that he is a proud, handsome rooster and waste no chance to show off. Quite an enjoyable subject he was.
the picture was shot just before sunset giving it a nice glow. I "processed" the picture in camera with an HDR filter to make his feathers pop.
