AHHH!

I also got similar effects by my playing around. Here's what I did with your Robin...

I much prefer these to your last versions. And I think this is more than a matter of taste...:lol:

For example, we have the options of turning out images into duochrome, trichrome, black and white, and a host of other effects - I feel that that tint you apllied simply hid the beauty of the bird. Meaning hid the DETAILS of the bird.

I post here a version of your Robin that is darker. I didn't spend much time on it and even if I did, I would be working from a tiny copy...

In the case of the Robin, it's pretty much a straight forward processing question.

In the case of the Wren - yes perhaps I'm WRONG!

But, I believe these are really great shots in which the detail of the biird is lost by the tint, with nothing esthetically gained, which would be the case in some of the options I list above...

My opinions - and if the shots weren't good, I wouldn't voice them.

No, no and a hundred more no's!:!::!:

About the Robin I just said the image should be darkened.

The Wren, was wiped by the tint...

Great shots alady, but I think they look more natural with the real blue feathers just starting to show in the unenhanced images.

However, they still look good with the yellow tint. A credit to your ever improving camera skills.

May I suggest for interesting effects try the duo, tri and quadtone options...

That way the bird will still retain the detail, which a tint wipes out...

Hi Alady (love that alias...:lol: )

Many programs allow this to be done. What image processing software do you have? If I don't know the answer I'm sure someone else does. The effects can be fantastic!

In a duotone, you choose, two colors, not black and white, tri-tone, three colors, quad tone, four colors. You pick the colors and just like a black and white conversion, it occurs automatically.
