another image from a wild photographic bird hunting few days ago with Mking, actually the word hunter in the title refers more to me than to the bird.
Definetely an experimental crop, however lack of anything sharp is as intended.

Nice abstract shot. Very well done and I like it :)

I thought it was a spear head hence the name Hunter, then I read the note :) The phrase "ET PHONE HOME" also comes to mind.
I really love the grey layers. Very interesting piece. I'm glad you shared it.

The grey layering leading up to the bird is well done. Good shot.

It's a bit scary and somewhat overwhelming.
I think it may be more suited to treklens, but none-the-less an interesting photo/piece of art.

great conversion peter, the tones are awesome.. did u add any grains? definitely a bold compo/crop (i'd maybe have cropped a few pixs from the bottom to start off with the darkest shade..).. a bit indecisive about the cropping of the bird, perhaps if it were more recognizable..

Yeah I'm a big fan of this one Peter, just like your 'Flight' image, I respect the original thought you've put into it. The shades of grey work well and without your note I think I'd struggle to work out what the subject is, which is something I like in an image.

i'm sorry Peter i like the sky, but I remember when i tried art painting in my teenage years, I was good at backgrounds such as skies, but in the end didn't know what to put at the foreground... It reminds me that period a bit.
I think you crossed the yellow line, this time. Come back quick.

Hello Peter! I like the harmonious flow of greys in your photo, but also the grainy appearance which suits so well. I am glad you were not hunting ... I would have liked to see the whole bird maybe. But the artist decides ... I like it anyway. Barbara.

I have read the comment of luko....but for me that's really intersting.
I like the art side and the crop is for me an excellent idea.
Your b/w is impressive too.
Yes...I like it...that's poetic...

WOW! I like the abstract, asymmetric style of your picture. Well done.

Cool, Peter. It works for me because a) I suspect yu know what you're doing and b) (more imortantly) there is a thick quality t yur tones, like a resonant bass or a voice that hangs long in the air - it's very difficult to describe but as you can see, i'm giving it the old college try ;o)
Seriously that and the beautiful way the vertical compo goes from complete darkness at the bottom end to light at the top, akin to a Rothko painting (and I KNOW you will understand that one...)

This touches me on a deep level, Peter. A very good blur, a very good crop. There is a sense of foreboding and angst in here which is very powerful. The grit adds an extra punch to it.
ps will be back

It works a 100% for me. Goes deep, goes rough, to that pumping stuff inside. The texture is to die for. Sheer poetry on the move.
