The Musée d’Orsay, in Paris, main salon.
This photograph was first processed in Silver Efex Pro for a black and white Kodak 35mm film look. Then sharpened in Lightroom.
I am amazed at just how clear the individuals below display. Even the shadows remained crisp.
In this photo the transmitter wire is clearly visible trailing behind.
Each bird that flys and feeds loose is fitted for one at the Center For Birds Of Prey. The range is around a mile. And yes, it had been used to track down a bird or two.
When out walking with a camera I look up and around, rarely down. This little guy only looked down, not up. It could have ended badly.
There was no warning of tiny birds since this one was all alone. No other small birds were anywhere near.
I know they are small but for perspective here look at the little shells around him.
All was good after we spotted each other. A few shots and we both went our way.
Kodak Panatomic ISO 32 film emulator processing.
Working post processing with Silver Efex Pro for monochrome and black and white. I wanted to try an image with many shadows and textures. Guess I found it.
Developed / processed with a sepia filter look and Agfa film. Shot 2014, Rome Italy.
Another of the nesting Blue Herons in a rookery. They are such amazing birds and we were so lucky to have found this. By now they must have young, this was taken over a month ago (one of hundreds).
Beautiful birds, but from the right angle they remind me of a cranky bearded old man too.
Another photo forgotten and found. I did shoot and post a number of photos of this bird. I had several other nice poses put aside.
This was taken in a swamp near a heron rookery. The Mockingbird landed on this cattail and sat in the sun watching us ‘slog’ by. I shot him from several angles and moved on. It was the perfect perch.
