Bug-Eyed But Beautiful

Discussion in 'Birds' started by beaucamera, Jul 8, 2007.

  1. The way the light caught this snowy egret makes it look bugged eyed.
    None the less I thought it was beautiful.

    Extracting it from the background was a big challenge.

    Here's two versions, the original and the extracted bird, placed on a new background.

    How do you think I did?

    It does look bug-eyed Virginia. As for the extraction, I think that you did extremely well. I like #2. :wink:
  3. Thanks, Frank.
    This is one of the best extractions I've done so far.

  9. Gale, thanks so much for your help with the shooting!
    It's still very difficult as I move the lens from brighter spots to darker ones to get the right exposure!:frown:

    BUT............I'm learning!

  10. Thanks Andy and Jimmie.

    Unlike many of my montages, I tried to make this as realistic as possible.
    Glad you like the result.
