Default The Humble Sparrow


From 50 yards I watched it fly beneath the eaves, building a nest for the coming Spring.

This image has a somewhat posterized, painterly effect to it, but it is so subtle that I am not sure that it is the result of any post-exposure processing.done for the purpose. This shows up mainly in the flank of the bird's body, where the details appear somewhat simplified. It obviously isn't motion blur doing this, because the bird's eye and feet do not exhibit this effect. I like visual puzzles like this one that keep me guessing.

It is a post processing effect, but don't ask me how I did it. I was just messing around with the image which is a massive crop from the original. For love nor money could I replicate the effect, even if I tried!
