bird

I stopped at McDonald's after the dentist today (!) and parked in front of this tree to eat. I mostly scared the birds away but one came back. I have no idea what kind of tree, or bird for that matter, but it was nice to see a little color. Of course, I played in Picnik, too.
great shot! :)

Wow! Thanks everyone! I really appreciate you all! I didn't really think I had a shot for the day but thought I'd see if there was anything I could do with the tree shots. The original actually could have been used as the silhouette theme - it was all quite dark. I tried a lot of editing but ended up not really doing all that much. I lightened it up a lot which got rid of the blurry telephone poles in the background (I had to clone out a little on the edges) and showed the bird's detail. Then I pushed the color to warm which made it yellow. Then added the frame and that was it. Amazing what those editing programs can do!

someone else probably already said this (I didn't read all the comments), but it has a very nice, simple, Asian feel to it.
