For those who appreciate rust, here's one from the open market on Parliament Street in York. These rusty garden ornaments caught my eye (and Moira's I think!). Though the background's blurred, it looked quite cluttered, so gave it the colour-popping treatment...

Looks like something from a tv series but can't think which. Nicely captured and processed.

You have made a superb job of isolating the bird and tag from the background, Trev, that sort of thing takes me ages (I'm thinking of the neck-spring in this instance). What a fine day out that was!

Nicely colour popped, Trev.: makes the rusty old bird really stand out so effectively.

Is this exotic creature extracting the urine, Trev? That would make it a mocking rocking birdGrin


Sorry, I'll get my coat....

Great work on the seperation, that spring must have taken a steady hand.

Hi Trev
Got drunk one night and ended up with a bird who looked like this, only joking she was really ugly, like the colour treatment works very well.

Regards

Trev.

I do recall this fine looking bird from one of Lynne's uploads Trev.
Been a while since I have went out with a rusty old bird.
And it cost me more than 20 quid too !!
