This one is something a little different for me, another experiment that came out interesting, I think. The source photo image for Firebird was chosen for its colors, and the final product you see here bears no resemblance to the starting point, except for the primary colors. After several rounds of filtering and manipulating, I "painted" the fanciful bird, with its exaggerated form and dark colors, rising against a fiery orange and yellow background. The softness of the edges of the central subject, and the radiance of the background convey a sense of shimmering heat. A slight vignette effect darkens the edges of the image just enough to highlight the subject at center frame.
