Hi Amica,

Re: creative interpretations--feathered friend

Peter you can come as late as you want when you bring prezzy's like this
I like both yours and Amica's vibrant colors, sorry to be a pest!! but i've got to ask, how did you both do it?
MargaretM, nice work!!
Lyle, you always come up with incredible variations.

Barry.

Re: creative interpretations--feathered friend

Barry, I didn't do much to the colors, they were already there :-) I adjusted the pic in RAW fixing the exposure and the vibrance a little, after that in PS I ran an action I wrote (which works nicely on pastel flowers, not so good on this one, so I tweaked the blending options) ran 2x Topaz Sharpen (masked the bird) some curve adj. and played with the BG...

The A-Maze-ing bird.

Thanks Barry. Thought I would play with this cool online applet again (and a few additions of course).
