The Birds from Boston

The faciating thing on post-processing is, how much you can do for a not so good shot and how much you can change it in a new direction. The scene above I liked pretty much, but my focal lense was not close enough and there was too much distraction around it.


On my way to discover new techniques, I gave a texture by Tray Radclif a chance. I personally think the photo is now much more balanced and express more what I have seen in the bird group.


technique: 1Raw, f9.5, 1/350, iso250, 105mm, silvereffx B&W, texture bending: overlay
