Idle chatter among feathered friends. Based on a silhouette, water in the background was replaced with a digital sky in PS.

Thank you Wally! I liked the silhouette, but the color and water behind them was not very exciting. PS allowed for a little more drama! I've been trying many, many times to photograph the cormorants, they're in an awkward spot to get a good silhouette. I liked this group the best(there were about 20 of them!)
