Monochrome Mockingbird


Okay, so I’ve been hanging on to the original photo I took of this mockingbird for a while, not wanting to delete it, but not knowing exactly what to do with it. This guy was high in the treetop and I only got one quick capture of him with my 200 mm lens.  Even at 200 mm I still had to do a major crop to get this image so noise and soft focus were issues.  But I like the pose, and after playing around a bit, I came up with stripping away the color and adding an “angled stroke” filter which sort of softened everything so it has more of a painted look.
