A piece inspired for the most part by THIS image by Scott Black.
The rest is from my own head.
*All my own photographs taken with Nikon D7000, handheld.
Back ground from stock. Background HDR created from single image exposures adjusted in CS4 (-2,0,+2), tonemapped in Photomatix. Final processing in PS CS4.
Birds from CS4 brush from here.
