Is#1's background real or replaced? The one here is really great.

The last one of the series is like the propellors of the space shuttle. Interestingly captured.

Those wispy cirrus clouds in #1 make a stunning background.

That red and yellow flower is like nothing I've ever seen before. Any idea what is is?

And the seed pods are from a eucalypt (gum) of some sort? The white color is interesting - they look painted.

Nice choice of subjects in this series.

background is real but I have saturated it, probably too much

Very very nice work! Loved the sky on that Cockatoos shot and the color on the heron shot, and loved the weird flowers.!

Keep up the good work.

Enjoyed this series with the varied subjects and rich colors. I can't remember seeing the heron posted here before, or anywhere else.
