Stepping Out by Tarrby

Great Crowned Cranes are so graceful that they seem to glide along when they walk. This one was walking in an arena of people in a Tenerife Zoo , but I wanted him in a prettier background and so I created this woodland scene and added the reflections so that he looked like he was stepping out of the water, I then added some rays of light and blended everything in Topaz, with CS6.

  • Actually Kira, I think this was a Russian Crane, probably from The Bolshoi!!! (Only joking). Thanks for your lovely comment. B. xx
