PP Challenge #21

Here's a photo I took on a rather overcast day in Germany.
Pentaxians, show me what you got!

Quick attempt. I saw this as a B&W. This was done entirely in Lightzone - my preferred tool for B&W conversions. The 'zone' interface is ideal for that IMO. I'd typically use a combo of Lightroom and Lightzone, but not needed since I just used the jpeg you provided. The composition also was quite working for me, so I did a rotate and crop - hope you don't mind!

oooohh this is kinda fun. I saw it a bit in B&W and bit in colour. I used lightroom for all the pp.

Went for square crop, sharpening, colour tweaks and some vignetting in LR.

The Magic Feather

It is amazing, the magic that surrounds us if we only look for it.

The Magic Feather from a Master's Perspective

The more I looked at this still life, the more I saw it as a Master's rendition. Hope no one minds a second look.

I went in close, too, to emphasize the feather's structure, the drops, and the texture.

I wanted to let the feather be the life in the photo, having it's surroundings appear more "dead" than in the original.
