Fighting Anghinas
« on: January 22, 2011, 10:10:00 AM »



Nikon D700 with Sigma 150-500mm zoom desaturated in SilverEfx Pro. It reminds me of a Japanese Ink drawing.

Really enjoyed it. Agree it looks very much like ink drawing.

Beautiful! I like the black silhouette of the birds against the sky. You're right, your image also reminds me Japanese drawings.

Nice work!  If you're going for a silk painting, though you might want to tone down the grain, especially in the sky.  Japanese paintings are known for simplicity - no element that doesn't need to be there.

I agree, good point. I must say that I was so drawn into the birds silhouette that I didn't notice the grainy sky.
