Just days after accusing Todd Sissons’ work of being enhanced courtesy of photoshop, ‘beautox’ now bleats about a photo of a pied stilt.
@Beautox: How can I put this so you won’t get too upset, drop your lip and run off bleating to Mummy?
Rearrange this phrase: “OFF PISS”. Please note I’ve used just two words so it won’t take long for you to look them up in the dictionary.
Thankyou- I like watching these birds- they seem almost impossibly slender.
Thanks- it’s often the goal of wildlife/bird photography to get them interacting with their environment (or each other). The Spring light accommodated a high shutter speed, freezing the feeding action ‘mid bill’.
This is up on the Whangaporoa Peninsular near Shakespear Regional Park. There are some ponds and bogs that attract a lot of coastal and wetland birds.
Looks like lunchtime for the stilt.
Saw a heap of these as we headed north from Napier this pm.
Too much traffic to stop – plus caravan on behind!!.
Made do, Chthoniid, with a wine while sitting on a log at the beach at Bay View – oh well!!!!!
I find wildlife photography boring, but I’ll be the first to acknowledge that it must take a lot of effort and patience to catch the shot….. but in the end, it’s still just a bloody bird, mate. Yawn.
Todd Sissons’ work, on the other hand, is absolutely beautifully composed and a joy to look at. And Photoshop is not ‘fake’ or somehow ‘cheating’; its a bona fide creative tool and Todd Sissons uses it like a master.
