Re: Swans

Lovely, Palms!

Great photo, Margaret! Had fun with this.

Color pencil clone in painter, then back to photoshop to clean up. The swan's head got lost in the dark background so I made a selection of it and set that with a Screen blend mode and merged down.

Re: Swans

This swan lost its mate to a predator a few weeks ago. Your classy contribution is very nice Swampy. Thank you.

Re: Swans

Thank you, Palms and Janet.

Years ago, my dad bought a pair of swans and they seemed to love the lake in our back yard, but first one disappeared then the other. We always assumed that an alligator got them. :-) They were such a joy to watch from the dining room window over a cup of coffee in the waking hours of dawn on a mirror smooth lake reflecting the sunrise glow.

Re: Swans

so we could call that a 'swampy lake', then, right? (oh come on, you were all thinking it )

Re: Swans

LOL, Craig. Actually it's Lake Grassy, but Lake Swampy is fine with me.

Re: Swans

Saves on the grass cutting I suppose having all that water in the way.
