CommentThis Blackbird eyeballed me so directly that I felt compelled to create something different here. So I have treated the image with a painterly look and feel in Topaz Impression, inspired by the work of Steve Parish. The bird was up hill from me in the garden so I shot through some leaf litter and foliage to create a nice soft foreground bokeh.
