Mandarin Orange Monday

lorik art

This was where I began ... I couldn't take my eye off of the Curve Billed Thrasher's Orange eye.  It was so striking yet in the scope of the picture it seemed to get lost.  So, I decided to help it out a little ...


Okay, this is better. Clearly a Mandarin Orange eye, but really. I think he needs a little touch up :)

How's that ... better?  A little PS filter work and a frame , that is more Mandarin Orange , right?

Oooo ... grunged him up a bit.  Not quite as Mandarin, but pretty cool.  I think I'll stop here.

  5. I enjoyed reading about the transformation. The images are great - and most definitely mandarin orange :) I love the way you presented it too - with the orange background etc. Thank you so much for being part of Mandarin Orange Monday :)

  8. Nice job! I do like your final piece. I've been so busy these past few days that I forgot all about the Monday Mandorin Orange. I'll have to get busy on that. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  9. Interesting. And where did you see this wondrous bird? They are arid, desert birds, found in the extreme southwestern US & throughout Mexico. I love them, having gotten to know them well in Arizona! Just sayin'. ;-)
