Workshop Note

I'm assuming you knew I was going to play with this image when you posted it.

Again, I'm not even attempting to make it better, just my interpretation of another great shot of yours.

I gave the fisherman a break yesterday, so I thought I would get rid of him today. Again, I chose to go with a theme of solitude. This time, for the bird.

The usual was done, close tools to lose the people, and duplicate layer was used to vignette. I also boosted saturation by 10%.

I took this a little further, by removing what little bit of the horizon that we could see. I felt it would add to the overall feel of the shot. This was done with clone tool and spot healing brush. This was done at various opacities, from 100% to 30%.

I also used another duplicate layer to remove the noise in the sky by using Gaussian blur at a radius .6 pixels. I then erased that layer from the foreground.

As with the last one, on this one I didn't sharpen after flattening the image. This time it was on purpose though.

Thanks again for a fun image Partha, and I promise I won't do this again. At least for a while.
