Last summer I spotted some Wattlebirds flying about & managed to capture one of them landing.
I try not to go nuts with filters, but I’m making an exception, as I’d happily wear either of the two altered images on a t-shirt.
My original intent in editing was to create a less detailed image for a beer label.
We haven’t used it yet, but eventually Smooth Cats will make a beer that this picture suits.
…or there’s always t-shirt printing.
Thought I’d add in the original image for reference.
Given how much glare there was that day, I’m surprised that I got this much detail at full zoom (300mm).
The feathers of the dude in flight fascinate me. A little worn, but effective.
