Hello again, it’s been a while.
We’ve had a bit of a hectic start to 2022 - an unscheduled house move (we rent) which was very stressful, then my daughter broke her arm at school. And just as she got the cast off her arm, she got chickenpox.

So we’re just starting to get back to ‘normal’ and I am trying to make some time to make images.

I took this one this afternoon in our garden, it’s had a bit of an edit in Snapseed.

Sheesh! What a start to the year. And I agree, the POV is stunning.

I’ve been playing around with this image for a while now. I made the first edit a few weeks ago, and then picked it up again this evening to do a bit more. I think I prefer the first version, although I think it needs ‘something’ in the background.

I think so, too, something to go with those lovely soft brushstroke feathers, but something that will fade into the background to leave the flamingo in front. Maybe something from Mextures or DistressedFX if you have those?

Hope you don’t mind, Helen, I’ve taken the liberty of posting full size versions of your images — all the better for our members to view and offer their wise words :)

Yes, I will have a look. I was thinking of some 'paint splatters' (not a technical term :D) as well, as I think it would go with the brush strokes. Need to swot up on iColorama for that one though.

Not at all. I was posting from my tablet last night and when I saw the full size option was 18MB, I panicked and resized. :D

I don’t think it needs anything, other than perhaps some light striking the head and shoulder of the flamingo - easily done in iColorama. It’s wonderful.

I have been trying to get some bluebell shots and finally found somewhere with more than one (which wasn’t on a grass verge or in someone’s garden). This was taken with Slow Shutter, and cropped in Snapseed to remove a random light area which was distracting.

And I’ve been playing around with wombo. I managed to get one image without the frame and title but can’t remember how now.
This is the daisy in my garden.

And this is the flamingo.
