Black and White Flamingo

A  black and white flamingo, taken at the Birdland park in Boulton-on-the-water, Cotswolds, UK.

Removing the pink colour and darkening the background enhanced the shapes of bird’s neck, wings and body. I also added some extra noise for a vintage look.

These pigeons perched on power lines look like notes on a music sheet.

I had had this picture in mind for a while and although very simple, it took me a while to come across a good enough pattern with a clear background. Like in this case. I looked up, took one shot and sure enough the birds all took off and were gone.
