Silhouetted Weaver Birds

Three weaver birds I captured quite some time ago, silhouetted against a cloudy sunset!

Thanks for all the well wishes you sent me yesterday!!! I am already starting to feel better, but still lacked the energy to get out with my camera... so I spent a quiet afternoon editing instead!!! :)
Beautiful!

Fav! Did you use a green screen?

Very nice shots. The Silhouettes are done perfectly. I like how you book ended the two shots with a different perspective in the middle.

@salza Thanks Sally!!!

@soboy5 Thanks Danny!!! And thanks... I'm also glad!!! :)

@gaston_palmer Thanks very much Gaston!!! No, these were three shots I had of birds sitting on the ends of branches... so they were silhouetted against the sky. I pulled the brightness and contrast ratios, which turned the light blue sky white, and the yellow birds very dark. I then wiped out the few leaves, and used a "bucket fill" to paint the birds completely black. From there it was just a case of turning the white transparent, and putting this shot over my sunset!!! :)

@jwlynn64 Thanks John!!! It spent some time trying all the birds in all angles... but this was the best way... or so I think!

@if1 Thanks so much Ian!!! And thanks for the fav too!

Very good processing. Beautiful collage.
posted January 2nd, 2013  
@monkeykid Very clever! I could see the silhouettes were too detailed for cut/paste operations, but I didn't think of turning up contrast instead of just having a mono-coloured background.

very creative triptych fav
posted January 5th, 2013  
Outstanding!! I love the way you've composed this. I can't begin to understand the elaborate processing you did (typically I just increase sharpness and maybe increase saturation to compensate for the muddy-ness that seems to come with 365 uploads), but your results are FABULOUS.
FAV!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well, but it sure hasn't dampened your creativity. :-)
