Top Birds/Sepia Scenes

Two birds on tin roof and air vent

One bird at the barn peak and one on the vent. Is the bird below envious of the bird above, the King of the Mountain?

the fact that there are two birds and two peaks really makes this photo work. Definintely caught a moment with this one. Cool shot!

Yes, nice one!!!

Jacob said...

Cute. I think the lower bird is trying to figure out how to knock the top bird off his perch!

Mary said...

Tricia said...

Another great sepia addition - I imagine after you snapped the picture, they fought over position as King Of The Mountain! LoL!

Perfect! It's a beautiful shot.

Hi EG - Birds and Barns. Sublime. Has the feel of near dawn or near sunset.

AND - here's what I do in answer to your question.

what I do is convert my image to natural in Microsoft Photo Suite. It gives it a really subtle and natural tone. Then I uploaded it to Flickr and used the photo editing software that you can find there. I have only the basic but I like it so much that I'm going to buy the upgrade version. Once I have it on Flickr, I curve the corners, make frames if it looks right (it did not in this case) and play with saturation and contrast. I usually stop when it all feels just right.

You have wonderful balance in this shot, beautifully framed. How nice of the birds to pose for you!

That is the chicken said...

I wonder if it's a hot tin roof...and thats why they're perched there to get the warmth?

This is a great shot and works v ery well in sepia

Good catch! It almost looked like a weather vane.

I think they are going to take turns. MB

The bird at the bottom is really looking as if he's scouting the availability of the top position!

ilanadavita said...

Great angle for this beautiful shot.

Dagrun said...

Haha, maybe it is envyous :) Nice composition!

Reader Wil said...

Perhaps the lower bird is afraid of heights. Great photo! Thanks for your visit!

Robin said...

Very nice composition. The off-center really highlights the bird on the top as your eye is drawn upwards.

Master of all he surveys.

judi said...

I like the wispy touch with the tree on the right. Makes it all the more stark.

Mary said...

Lovely and I prefer to think that the bird above is the guard or protector of the one below, so she doesn't mind :-)

kaye said...

good question and great photo. I love the details brought out in the barnwood

Stop by to see my sepia scene

Dianne said...

the bird on the bottom is grateful for a lookout!

beautiful in sepia!!

sunnymama said...

He does look like a king bird right on the top! It's a great picture.

Ralph said...

Neither bird is the superior. The fact that those two are up there (while we humans are not) means that they are merely superior to us...

Donna Williams said...

l like the simplicity of this a lot. It is very intriguing.

George said...

I like this sepia photo and I definitely think the lower bird is trying to end up on top!

PJ said...

Those two birds have no idea how famous they are. There's always something rustic in EG for SS. I love it. Have a good weekend.

Patti said...

I really am not sure if birds have feelings of envy, but..maybe they do!

Nice capture.
