playing around with picnik

I do prefer photos “au natural” but it is nice to learn new skills. A before and after……

Now I need to know how to put a glint in his eye lol


put his glint in but it does look a bit false lol

I agree that 'au naturel' is best but sometimes a little tweak can just lift a snap to a photo. Bit like framing & signing just finishes it off. Glad you tried playing with piknik beyond Autofix.

Glint in his eye? You could tickle him under the chin. I would post a link to Kylie & the happiest bear on the planet but probably best not on a Bird site.

Very good job Littlewren, it's made a big difference. As for a glint in his eye, you'll need to make yourself a big Song thrush suit!!!

glint doesn't look pretty good to me but then I've never seen a bird that's been chucked under the chin. Keep playing with piknik and you will soon be up to Wild Life Photographer Of The Year level. 2011 entries are now open.

If you haven't seen the 2010 display then have a look at http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/whats-on/temporary-exhibitions/wpy/
