Digital Manipulations

I forced myself to learn Adobe Photoshop back in Y2K. I didn't have much faith in computer drawings before. In the early 80's I tried my hand at IBM's photostudio 1. I found it too slow. Years passed and the development of Photoshop and Illustrator proved remarkable, aside from numerous other paint programs. Babbage would have been prouder today.

Here are some favourite photos of local birds that nest nearby my place and here they are after being touched by powerful tools of Adobe. A brand new street lamp post infront of the house is a favourite perch for this guys. In a nearby park there is a special dead tree that stands sentry amongst smaller trees. I thought a mercury lamp would jazz it up nicely;-)
