No matter what anyone says, trying to be artistic with a picture you love that has flaws is a lot of work. I’ve been working on this one for hours. Literally at least two hours.

I tried it earlier, but the colors were all wrong. This time, the colors are closer to true, but I had to use a lot of filters to bring the colors at least close to the way they looked.

Impressionist red-bellied woodpecker …

Now I have to figure out how to get the shot without shooting through the grubby kitchen window at a 45-degree angle!

  1. I’ve got too many of those grubby window shots because I know if I try to open it first I’ll either miss the shot or scare off the target. That happened with the only turkey I ever spotted in my yard, though I guess I got a nice shot of it flying away from the rear…

      • It’s said that the clear air and brighter light in the Southern Hemisphere and particularly over much of Australia ( we get some bad dust storms these days and some bushfire burn off smokey days) is great for photography – even so it can be hard getting the true colour in a pic and depends upon the light conditions and the exposure setting… and if my window is clean of course ;-).

        Mine are all ground floor windows on account of me not having a second floor! 🙂

        Have you tried a sponge on a long stick?? 🙂
