I like the picture. At risk of writing something that might find its way into Pseuds' Corner in Private Eye, (Hi Steve!) I have to say that the picture puts me in mind of Sibelius and Finlandia.

Just as an experiment, I tried adjusting the picture a bit. I don't claim that the variation's an improvement or that it evokes Finlandia. I hope, Klaus, that you don't mind my posting the result.

Not at all! I know the colors was a bit too much - but I like it the way it is. Postcard or realism ? Hmm...a matter of taste.

not to brag, but i noticed that it was something strange with the bird. If you would have darkened it a bit it would have fit together alot better (and I would never had noticed it).

Otherwise it is a fantastic shot, i really like it. scandinavian nature is fantastic isn't it?

Hi Lcohen , so you're a Swede!

My meaning was not to fool anyone in this forum (did that on photosig )!

It was my intension from the very start to post this manipulation. If you look at the original shot , you cant tell if the bird is real or not. This was just for fun.

I tried the same about a half year ago in and danish photoforum and lots of people got really mad at me and did'nt think it was fun at all. Okay, it's maybe a little unfair to post it first, without saying anything untill later....

Danish humour ? I dont know - but it's also important for all of us to be aware of - these photomanipulation. What's real and what's not!

Nobody can tell!

Just for the fun of it!

Regards
Klaus

And I agree with you, it is important that we all are aware of this "problem". And it's fun to see how good results can get with some manipulation .

Perhaps a competition would be nice "find the manipulated thingie in the picture" :lol:

I didn't mean this part. photo (this is resized and compressed). I meant the original 35mb shot! It can be done - and if its done right - you have to measure every single pixel to discover .

Hmmmmm...this thread has become an interesting discussion on digital "design" (manipulation has a bit of a negative connotation lol!)

Years ago, when an Olympic class runner fell a the responder
quickly appeared on the scene and a photograph was
snapped.

When published, "magically" the antenna of the radio worn
by the responder had "disappeared".

When someone of talent like Klaus can "fool us", I for one,
am greatly impressed.

Gee, I just thought he had a trained aviator .

Keep up the great work, Klaus.

Your talent as a photographer and "editor" inspires me
to improve my photos.

Thanks for sharing, Klaus
