Show Off - Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 47

in Feathered Friends2 months ago

Greetings, bird-watchers and fans of animal and wildlife photography!

Today I have decided to join in the Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 47 by @nelinoeva and the theme this round is "BIRDS IN BLACK AND WHITE".

As 99% of the time I shoot in RAW format, I have the liberty to decide how the corresponding photo will look at the point of post-processing.

By the way, if you have any questions about the RAW format or my post-processing, do not hesitate to ask at any time! ;)

So with this entry I would also like to demonstrate the power of editing :)

Let me first start with the picture that is the entry for the contest and a drop with a bit of a negative and danger feel ;)


This guy was definitely showing off to me. Or perhaps, simply taking his bath without minding me taking photos of him :) This scene happened while I was walking next to a small pond near some waterfall in the Plitvice national park in Croatia. It is an amazing place, so if you haven't been there, you should definitely plan for it!

Anyway, here is the original, non-cropped photo in color:


Now let me share with you few more photo-edits.

This one below with a bit of positive sentiment, hehehe:


This cropping shows the amazing game of the water droplets the duck was creating by slapping the surface of the pond with its wings:


The last edit I am about to show you now mirrors the look and feel of a photograph from an old Holga camera (of course analogue or as we say "film camera"), manufactured in the early 40-ies of XX-th century:

Thank you for sharing these pictures, a beautiful picture and at the right moments, as you used black and white in a good and professional way. I am a fan of these two colors. I also forgo the use of the raw format for editing photos

Thank you for your kind words!
Indeed, shooting in RAW gives so much flexibility later ;)

!giphy thank you

Bird, water, splashes, droplets, all together equals to a marvelous image.
You nailed it! 🙂

Thanks so much for your inspirational words and appreciation! :)

!giphy have a great day

За първи път го ползвам и не знаех какво точно ще покаже. 😀

Има някакъв чар и тръпка в това, че не знаеш какво точно ще покаже, нали? :)))
Ползвам го от няколко седмици, само 1-2 пъти е давало неща, които леко сконсфузват ситуацията, но винаги е забавно! :)

Абсолютно. 😀
Доста е забавно наистина и смятам да го ползвам. 😉
