Photoshop Friday - The Crane

The Sand hill cranes in our current home of Blueberry Hill RV Resort in Bushnell Florida are so tame it is easy to walk up very close to get photos.

Therefore, I was able to snap this one to use for our Photoshop Friday challenge.  I was pleased that some of the participants commented it was too pretty to mess around with, but that didn't stop them!

I did my usual schtick of applying a bunch of filters, although I am trying out some different filters for a change.

plastic wrap

offset, repeat pixels and flipped the image

Judi sent this one that topped in with 59 layers: 

Andrea came up with three versions of it:

Miss Edna created this image:

Long Live the Queen of The Cranes

Next Friday's subject:


  1. What fun! I like them all. It is so much to see what everyone comes up with!

  2. Wow, how different, yet fun they all are. For some reason I love that plastic wrap filter. I wonder how long it took to color each of the feathers? It's certainly unusual, yet rather pretty. I'm looking forward to next week's challenge. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. Original photo still my favorite but the shopping one is pretty awesome.

  4. My favourite is your original. You just can't improve upon that!
