While converting my image files I came across these two look-alikes — Big Bird and Baby Bird. Baby Bird hasn’t developed a full body yet. I never know what I’ll find in Central Park.
I am in the midst a very tedious job, converting, or exporting, all my Nikon RAW files to TIF (I already have JPG versions). I have to perform this rescue because my RAW files are randomly self-distracting (with color bands). It’s like putting out a slow burning smoldering fire that pops up randomly. I have over 148,000 images, half of them RAW files. This is a Lightroom and Nikon issue that I ‘ve been told is unfixable.
I began with a boring photo of some white iris flowers. Split it into muliple Iris and added a background to create this composite image. Adjustment layers, masks and blending modes in Photoshop refined the image.
