Kite Festival - Bird
Processed from raw using ufraw and then unsharp mask in gimp to sharpen up because I think my focus was a bit off and the EF 75-300 is fairly soft at 300mm.

Bird table in use.

Bird table in use.
My home made bird table and bath combination in use by a hard-to-see blue tit. They don’t just eat the seed, I’ve seen them hop around the surrounding roses picking off aphids. Very helpful.

I made a bird table.
I made this very simple combination bird table and bath from some plastic saucers meant to go under plant pots, some chain and some S hooks.

Planet Plough

Planet Plough
Polar coordinates distortion. Original image was rotated to make the horizon as flat as possible and cropped for the correct proportion of ground to sky. To aid seamless joining I upped the contrast to whiteout the sky and had a go at the ground with the clone tool. It was then stretched vertically to make the x and y size the same and the image square. Then I applied the Polar Coordinates distort filter in GIMP. Finally I tidied up the join with the clone tool again. I’ll stop playing with filters now, yes.
