funny how these guys stayed lined as they moved forward. i also liked the reflections
you have an amazing gift Jon, composition master!
Incredible shot! Good eye, man!
Love the compo but the birds seem a bit too blown out. Other than that I love it!
i knew when i took it they'd be blown, but liked the comp anyways.
O.T.E. this: anyone versed well in PS can try their hand at it...i can't do it. i may try Wally's suggestion later. i'd love to see what you come up with. (if it looks good, i'll bug ya to tell me what ya did )
thanks everyone for your kind remarks!
I flipped it horizontally (not sure about this.) and added some noise (5%). I think it would be better with Wally grain technique but as yet I don't have a sample of film grain!
Nice composition BTW!:thumbup: I like how they were co-operative for you!
wow! Jon! you know what adds the feeling and the mood to this picture? THE LEAF! which is next to the first bird. It is great! i love it!
Nice shot JonMikal, this is one of those shots that shooting in RAW would have helped a lot.
Anyway the problem with the birds being a bit blown out, is that you lost all the details of the feathers, so just burning down the breasts of the birds did not really help much (I tried) so to get texture back I used the select color range tool in PS CS2, and then selected the blown out areas. Then I created a new blank layer, and ran Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 "textures" to render some textures. I actually used "giraffe fur" and selected custom colors of white and medium grey. It would have looked a bit better if I were working off a high res image, but I think this looks ok. What do you think?
Beautiful job, Wally!
man Wally, this looks awesome! i did shoot this in RAW, but don't have the experience in Nikon Capture or PS CS to pull this off.
i am very impressed with your skills! thanks.
