three flamingos
i'm going to hold my hands up straight away and say that this photo has benefited from photoshop manipulation. whilst it's normal for me to play around with the colours, as well as rotating and cloning out dust spots, i went a step further this time. i liked the crop of the three flying flamingos, but the middle one wasn't centred enough for my symmetrical sensibilities. through my eyes it looked better to have an even gap between each of the flighted birds, so i nudged the middle guy to the right and painted in the lake behind him. as a result i can't really defend myself from accusations that this photo is a fake. but a balanced and self-admitted fake is better to me than the off centre reality.
