just gorgeous!! i love it! 🙂
Nice capture. Not sure if there was an post processing outside of the conversion to B&W to make the starling seem brighter than the surrounding, but I do like how the it stands out from the background by use of low f/stop.
That’s a really well thought image of a Starling. Tremendous sharpness and the background is diffused so well. It’s a shame that there’s such a bright area in the lower Rt corner. It can be cloned out (I’ve spent a few minutes experimenting in Photoshop on a copy, which is now deleted). If you cropped off the bottom of the current image from just below the Top Lt corner of the chair arm that the Starling is sitting on then you limit the work required and all you have to work on is copying down the geometric pattern of the chair back (relatively straightforward), the vertical dark grey/light grey line (also easy). The hard bit is the horizontal top of the chair arm but, if you work on a big enlargement that should be possible. I think the image is good enough to warrant that effort.
Thank you for your tips but from what I read here it doesn’t look as easy I am really not good at cloning things my photos usually look strange, but if you’d like to play around I can send you the full size image 😉
Cloning is difficult to begin with, but as with so many things, the more you do the better you become at it. I would be pleased to see what I can do with this image. I think you will have my email address from previous contacts. Look forward to hearing from you.
what a wonderful, sweet image! just lovely.
Stunning shot. Love the b&w tones.
