My Share of Bird Photos

Nature parks are a photographer’s haven.  They offer the perfect starting point for exploring a country and the semi-contrived setting often contains elements that a photographer would like to include in his/her composition.

Some of the photos I collected over the years were those of birds featured in nature parks (many of my bird photos were taken at Jurong Bird Park in Singapore and the Cleland Wildlife Park in South Australia).  Not surprisingly, the colorful plumage of these creatures revived my interest  in painting and, if I were still into that hobby, I would have used the photos as models for a watercolor composition.  But perhaps I have already lost my patience in painting that’s why, while processing these images, instead of digging up my painting gear, I just decided to play painting with the bird photos using a photo editing software.  The resulting images, the photos in this gallery — my make-believe “watercolor paintings” — were posted in a 3-part series in December 2011.  I thought that this will be the perfect gallery for this weekend.  Have a good one.
