Toy Filter Birds

By Daisymaye
Today I used the Toy function/filter in my camera. I thought I hated it but now after giving it a good try I really like it. I think I shall use it again some time. Because I took so many images and kept many today is just water birds. Some herons and some yellow legs.

A great set, I like them all, I myself never delete wire, etc. from my images, if something is in the frame when I compose the image I leave it in.

I like your last version best, but the award was for your experimenting and making it work!
Love your mono lead of the Great Blue....I think one of our most majestic birds.

Great set Sandy "Lead and V1" great to suit your fancy.

I think the results of the toy filter are seen best in colour images...but...your lead image is an excellent conversion, and my award is for that one.

The fuji filters are a ton of fun. I like some of my Olympus filters ...keep experimenting Sandy I know you'll become very good at utilizing them with your creative eye . The heron shots are amazing .
My wife and I just spent two weeks in our motorhome in your wonderful province ...will share images soon .
best regards

Quote:Left the line in. Too big to remove easily.

If you use Photoshop, have you tried the patch tool? It's quite good at this kind of thing. You'd need to do one for the part in the sky and another for the darker b/g.
