About the Image(s)

Beaky. One of this month's competitions in Photocrowd is the mirror image of
an animal. I chose a portrait of a young Egyptian Goose. Simple technique - cover
the entire image with the Rectangular Marquee Frame, Copy, Rotate Horizontally,
Paste at 50% opacity. I usually then adjust Levels by narrowing the left and right
sliders, and job done! If you aren't yet a member of Photocrowd, why not? its' free
and good fun!

Wow !Original image is quite good but this is a strange 'duck' if I do say so , myself. Like the creativity.

The original is a young Egyptian goose. They have really only been breeding in the UK for the last ten years, but now they seem to be everywhere!   Posted: 09/04/2020 13:58:55

Very good. It reminds me of an African mask.   Posted: 09/04/2020 15:47:00

Certainly innovative; I agree it looks like a mask.   Posted: 09/13/2020 08:35:59

I agree with the feel of an African mask, but it does feel a little creepy. It's an interesting concept to flip in the middle. I certainly think it's an interesting technique and works well with such a neutral background, but as a subject, this one doesn't work for me

What pills do you take?! Very amusing image thogh I do feel that the central area with the eyes is a little confusing. Perhaps just the lower half of the image would be another option.   Posted: 09/14/2020 03:38:21
