About the Image(s)

A visit to Florida’s Flamingo Gardens produced this peacock who posed for quite a while. Seeing a peacock with his display is not uncommon but I thought a head shot might be a little different.. Cropped so he wouldn’t be too bulls eyed; used Viveza to accentuate his colour. (Being such a brilliant specimen I don’t think I overdid it). I didn’t give him an eye enhancement I thought it was subtle as is. A small stroke to finish. Included his full display and some info on peacocks in the side bars.

Interesting shot, I can't recall seeing a photograph of a peacock's head from this angle. They are almost always done from head on (original 1). Good eye.   Posted: 06/01/2018 15:38:20

Beautifully saturated colors! I also really like the fact that his eye seems to have the same texture as the feathers next to his eye. How did you create the final image from the originals? The angles seem different to me... or am I missing something?   Posted: 06/03/2018 11:32:39

No, I didn't create the head shot from the original, I just wanted to include the full display so that you could see how beautiful he was.   Posted: 06/03/2018 15:39:51

Smiles.... that explains it. I thought you knew some Photoshop magic that I wasn't aware of.   Posted: 06/03/2018 15:43:14

The same peacock posed for me. Well maybe not the same one, but I have a similar shot as your original. You said that your image was not from the original. It is beautiful. How did you create it in novice terms please.   Posted: 06/14/2018 11:38:37

Renee this is actually the original, (see my reply to Oliver). I merely put the other two images (top R) so that the members could see how beautifully he posed and the other shot was just info on the peacock. I'm not clever enough to twist his head from the full display--but I bet there are some in DD that could do it!   Posted: 06/14/2018 15:09:22
