This is the first time I have posted a picture with selective coloring on my blog. But I thought this shot worked pretty well because it doesn’t feel so overdone (at least not to me). 🙂
Originally, the background was full of green ferns. The picture was fine. But it was a little too ordinary, and I thought the background competed too much with the flamingo for the viewer’s attention. I think this end result gives the flamingo more presence, and it feels fairly artistic to me. Fine art photography is a subjective term, but would this qualify? I welcome any thoughts you might have!
