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


Wally Orlowsky July 21, 2004

Great shot and effect, Deborah. Your bird silhouettes are terrific. #150068

Deborah Sandidge July 21, 2004

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!) #662607

Joy Brown July 21, 2004

Great shot and digital sky, Deborah! #662626
