About the Image(s)

I went to a bird educational program outside. It was hard to isolate the
bird, which was on the educator's arm with kids and people in the
background, so I extracted it and took the photo of the log later that
day with the intent to composite them.

Beautiful Bird Lisa!! I think you did a great job here with compositing.
When I look closer, it doesn't seem that the bird is connected to the stump, as if it's floating above it a bit. I think the sharpness of the talons differs from the stump so maybe a bit of blur on them?   Posted: 09/10/2021 21:31:12

Thank you Kathy, I tried to connect the feet to the stump by adding drop shadows underneath, I guess I need to go back to the drawing board. That is why these DDs are so useful.   Posted: 09/10/2021 23:03:21

Lisa, I like what you've done here. There's something very compelling about the angle the bird is regarding the viewer. I agree with Kathy about softening the edges some.   Posted: 09/11/2021 21:36:14

Hi Lisa,
Nice bird. I agree with Kathy's suggestions. I think the log has too much of a green cast that could be desaturated. Perhaps the birds needs a green cast around the edges?   Posted: 09/14/2021 11:05:15
