Two swans preening, but in black and white more – to me, anyway – a collection of patterns, tones, forms and textures.  I particularly like the birds’ big, heavy, contorted and almost obtrusive shapes, which rather tight, claustrophobic framing may help to emphasise.

Other recent bird pictures are here: 1 2 .

Technique: Z 6 with 70-300 Nikkor lens used in APS-C format to give 450mm; 800 ISO; Lightroom, starting at the Camera Landscape v2 profile; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Full Contrast And Structure present and adding a light Coffee tone; Herons Green, Chew Valley Lake, Somerset; 18 Oct 2019.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I agree, the tight framing makes them look even more – well, almost wadded up in their contortions. 😉 Interesting!


  2. Engrossing. Almost like a photograph of abstract sculptures.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
