Photo Contest Finalist
Description: When I encountered this displaying peacock yesterday, it was a breathtaking experience. But EVERYONE photographs these magnificent birds. So, I tried something different: "Golden Silver Peacock" Converted to b&w, added sharpness and contrast, applied two gradients (silver and gold, using the metallic palette in CS3, dodged and burned, painted a little history back..and that's about it!
