As the crow flies III

It’s almost half past midnight, and I’ve been working on the computer to isolate and construct a nice range of crow and raven photos. I shot a couple of hundred pictures of them in the course of last month. I arranged them in a rising cloud emanating from the feet of the figure, who is just left of the golden ratio at bottom left of the panel.

I’ll often use the golden ratio as a guide for composition, using both the line of the ratio itself across the picture, and the crossing points of the four lines together as key points in the arrangement of the figures of the piece.  

More on this later, I’m going to bed.
