Sonels Photo Challenge: Feathers


Tranquility

First the enhanced photo.  I uploaded the original photo to Snapseed, a free photo editing tool to sharpen the original a tad then I used a bright filter to add drama.  I then uploaded this image to Pics art where you can do lots of funky things, but I mainly use it for borders and special effects when I want to add atmosphere and also if I want to create montages or multi-photos in one frame as yesterday’s post. I used a vignette, a Bokeh24 mask and border 23. I hope you enjoy the result,

Here’s the original taken in a nature reserve in Northamptonshire.  Which do you prefer?

Waiting

This photograph was inspired by Ese’s photo prompt ‘waiting’.  I like the way the birds look as if they are queuing and waiting for something to happen.  My Border Collie is waiting in anticipation too.  Even in St.Albans we have had flooding as you can see in the photo. I hope you enjoy the peaceful setting.
