A Birdy Landscape

There are times when out looking for birds to photograph they can be elusive. Far away and part of the landscape, the ability to capture a beautiful bird image just isn’t possible.

It is a time to switch the thinking process and consider the scene as a landscape image with the birds as an element in the scene.

The birds were uncooperative this past Saturday morning when I was out with the Anne Arundel Bird Club for a bird photography workshop. So it was time to change perspectives.

I saw two opportunities that would lend themselves well to a birdy landscape and I encouraged the participants to see the scene in a different way.

Bringing the images home, I did some minor exposure and contrast adjustments in Lightroom before bringing them into Topaz Impressions for a subtle painterly effect.
