Some Osprey Photo Art

wanted to start playing with some art treatments to some images I have that are nice but not perfect or like this one was just a chance thing that he came along when I was out shooting with a small lens... going to print some of what I will be working on to see if it will print out good... let me know your thoughts... it's art so am sure there are some things some will like & some that others don't... but I like to hear opinions... thank you in advance...

Re: Some Osprey Photo Art

photo art is a great way of using up images that are not quite perfect
On this one i have to say i don't like the frame/matt i think it distracts from the bird, what i think maybe would be better is just a vignette effect
the colour of the sky and background are great

Re: Some Osprey Photo Art

thanks palms for your opinion... ok so you think the matting work takes the front stage... just a bit to heavy for the ospery image you think? for me it was about adding texture around him to bring your eye into him... I will for sure try it a few ways before doing any printing... thank you so much for your reply...

Re: Some Osprey Photo Art

how about this... I toned down the texture but I removed the blue edging because after seeing it here I didn't like the blue edge... what do you think now???

That is what art is all about though isn't it ? we all have different views so there is no right way and no wrong way just personal preferences
