This isn't my fault, Shawn. I just followed the hawk and there was the photograph. :)

The original is much like this. It was a drab, gray sky and I decided to use threshold on everything but the hawk in order to accentuate the lines.

Very cool,Steve. I really like the effect.
I think it is important to try out new things, new inputs. That's keeping it interesting. Christine #4104498

Wow Steve. Talk about a 180 deg. turn. This is much different from your usual! I like it. I think it is the simplicity of this image. Like the high contrast. Very well done.

Thank you, Roxanne and Dave. I decided to reveal the monochromatic side of my personality. Sort of like Jekyll and Hyde. :)

Nice work Steve; congrats on your Finalist! Jeff #4212069

Mitch Spence 4/25/2007 11:45:56 AM

Whoa, Steve, I missed this entirely. How did I do that? This is a great concept, and it fascinates more the more you look at it. I'm especially enthralled because I've just been fooling with the threshold filter, and this is a parcularly apt use of it. Hey, hot stuff and imagination to see it. #4212397

Steve M. Harrington 4/25/2007 12:00:33 PM

Thanks a lot, Jeff and Mitch. When you're sitting in an industrial area with a telephoto lens and nothing to do, you have to fire up the imagination! :)
