The Doves Are Back! by granagringa

The Doves Are Back!

We had a nesting dove couple on our balcony last year; they had several nest and broods and chose various window boxes to call home. Well, it seems they are back. We named them Ike and Mamie last year and there's no real way of knowing if these are the same two. We are renaming them Harry and Sally.
I did quite a bit (for me) of fooling around on PS. I've blurred backgrounds before using Gaussian blur but this is the first time I've used a layer mask!
Nice editing, it has worked out perfectly. Birds tend to come back to the same nesting places so I guess this may well be Ike and Mamie. I am sure they won't mind their new names though.

How lovely that they came back. I don't know what the life-span of doves is but we have a pair who are always in our garden and seem to have been with us for years, we grow so used to them and always look forward to their return.

It's going to be exciting watching them grow their family once again!
They are a pretty pair.

Whatever you did it has worked well... nor that I want to encourage you to waste your life in Photoshop! Better and quicker to get it right in camera!

@lostphojo Thanks, David..glad you thought the processing worked well...and would that I could get it right in camera! That's always the goal, but's just a bit on the dull side!
