G'day there,

have to agree that both edits lose something in the original image of contrast between the sky and the bird. Thought I would also have a go at this and well go in a completely different direction from both the edits and the original. Here are two takes on the shot. Obviously I have taken it to slight extremes, but it was on purpose.
One shot is oversaturation of the sky and some sharpening up of the bird.
The other shot is removal of the blue from mainly the sky and highlighting of the bird using a few layers. Not 100% neat and tidy I realise but I was in a rush.

Enjoy, or completely disprove tis all up to you folks.

Ollie

Hello Ollie,

The edits are nice, but look unrealistic. Are you using an accurately calibrated monitor?

G'day,

umm errr.....To answer your question, yes. Secondly you seem unable to read what I wrote. I did say and I quote "I have taken it to slight extremes, but it was on purpose"

I did it on purpose, and therefore I automatically realise why it is how it is. As for looking "unrealistic", well all I can say is that it is an edited photo, not the original and if I need to repeat myself again and explain what I did to both shots then I will obviously get nowhere with you.

A simple comment like, nice edits, not my thing or nice edits and good idea but too saturated etc etc etc.

Ollie

Hello Mugmar,

Thank you again, just to let you know I did not tweak the blue.

Hello Yazzy,

Thank you for the comments, this was the color of the sky when I shot the picture, I mess around with it and see how it looks lightened up.

Hello Ken,

I did not use a pola filter, the sky came out the way I saw it I got lucky.
