This shot of a flamingo was taken in The Jardin Des Plantes, in Paris, the oldest zoo in the world. Processed in Lightroom 2 and then tweaked in CS3. My wife likes this shot, I’d love to know what you think…

    The background looks like water splashing and all the feathers are really fabulous. I saw one of these fly over us in Tulum, Mexico

  • Thanks Cheyanne, its actually light reflecting off leaves, which I cloned and then extended a bit. It reminds me of stars.
