Rocking Bird

By TrevBatWCC    
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...

Techie stuff see Exif

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.

A super image and with his forlorn look and the label, Paddington comes to mind!

I think this bird would be too expensive for a tight Scotsman like our Mick!Wink

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 !!
