A bird bath full of sparrows, a sculpture and fountain at the Conservatory Garden in Central Park, New York City, USA. PLEASE VIEW LARGE
What I wanted was impossible to get in one shot so I took twenty and carefully moved birds over from different shots in Photoshop.

11/26/2010 FEATURED in the redbubble group BEAUTIFUL GRUNGE ART Permanent Feature Page

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at www.PixielatedPixels.com

    I know nothing about photography or the amazing effects and techniques that you have created here Chris, but I think the way you’ve transformed the birds and water into a captured bronze moment is fabulous! What a stunning image, congratulations :-)

  • Well that’s an awfully nice comment Constance. Thank you so much. It did take a little “tweaking” to get this image just the way I wanted so I am very glad it was worth the effort. Cheers.
