…morning light is magic…

Abstract Avocets

Got bored on Christmas morning waiting for everyone to get up (yes I wake up at 4:00 a.m. even on holidays) and started playing around on Photoshop with some recent Avocet pictures.  Took these in cloudy conditions at Bolivar recently and didn’t like the lighting and colors.  I’m a little spoiled with golden light at sunrise.  First tried converting to B&W, which I liked better.  Then used the “glowing edge” filter in PS5 for the final version.

Happy New Year everyone!

    Certainly something totally unique with these conversions. I like them quite a bit. I don’t really have any issue with your color version either.

  3. Pretty cool conversions. Since we see less of them I like the B&W.
