    Great picture. The color of the flamingo is really good! However, a question that always puzzled me a bit. How do you manage to get such a black background?

    The flamingo was standing where the background was quite dark already ( but not as dark as it is now). I then processed the photos (raw) file by decreasing exposure a little, shadows a little, adding a little highlights until it was visually pleasing to me

    And there's no texture in the black, it's difficult to tell if the flamingo is standing against it or the black is cut out to show the flamingo. The very reason these black backgrounds do not work is that you can't create a mask that's good enough to be convincing and you remove the texture from the background so it's no longer consistent with the subject, it bears no relationship, it is removed... And who ever sees a colourful bird against a black background? Sorry, the bird's great but the background shows a lack of imagination. :(:(

    Love this shot. And I commend you for getting the colors of the flamingo right. I have never ever been able to accomplish that.
