Note: Peter Baumgarten captured this photo on Manitoulin Island in Ontario. The photo is very well balanced with the fence in the foreground and the barn being a secondary focal point. The dark sky and snowy ground adds to the eerie mood along with the crow that is landing on the fence.

Tip: Patience can have a big impact on your photography. Don’t come to a location or composition and just snap photos because you have a memory card that can hold hundreds or thousands of photos. Think about the angle of your shots, your subjects and how to make the photo more engaging and interesting. Patience paid off for Peter when the bird landed on the fence and added a great deal of interest to the photo.
