Walk Beside Me …

Had time to do a little birds watching. It’s uncanny how bird’s interaction mirrors our own.

“… Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
–Albert Camus

The water color is a result of shooting during sunset time. There were patchy clouds reflecting some of the sunset colors into the water. I changed white balance to “shade” during raw conversion to get warmer tones. I also cloned out a few distractions on the water surface. I wish I could have gotten more details and sharpness out of the birds, but given the available light and what I had to work with, I am happy with these shots.
