Seven Wrens

Same bird, just run through the wash at different spin speeds.  Click on photos for closeups.
Original with some lighting adjustment and cloning and sharpening.



Greater sharpening filter added
Turned into a watercolor.
Turned into a colored pencil drawing.
Used a "comic" filter.
Adding a super smoothing filter (Liked this!)
The original grayscaled.
Do you have a favorite?  Yes, the pine is fake pine that I leave on the deck for just such shots!

Number 1 is my favourite, but they are fantastic.

The color pencil effect is so pretty!

I liked the first best but the watercolor version is a close second.

Such a pretty little wren no matter how you look at it.

I guess it all depends on where you would use the photo. I like the comic one for the graphic look but the first two for the strength of it's natural look. -- barbara

I'll take the original any day. I'm a bird watcher so I want things as natural as can be.

I like the watercolor

I often sharpen and crop but other than that, tend to prefer bird pics as they are snapped. However, I really do like how the watercolour turned out.
