Standing Out

By ChazB      
Thanks to everyone for the comments on my puffin yesterday. Last night I found a few more shots I'd overlooked from my trip to the Isle of May including this one, which I hadn't really considered, probably because of the very out of focus fg covering the puffin. However, when I opened it I decided I really liked the dof and the effect this created in the background. All I've really done is increased contrast, saturation and sharpening and then a crop. Thanks for looking!

Excellent background which lets the eye focus on the puffin, a very artistic result.

This is superb Charlotte; almost a watercolour effect with the foreground and background blur and the puffin sharp as a tack walking through the middle; a beautiful image and completely original - my turn to return the favour Smile
