    It was tricky getting the parrot to hold the silver piece.

    These are unreal mate. Incredible would be a better word!
    The detail, the atmosphere, the tone and processing, and composition is so good. I bet some time was put into these pictures

    you may like to share what you use to process your pictures:smile:

    oo-roo,

    Odz, these are just perfect, as are your WWII re-enactment photos. You have a great talent for portraits. May I ask about the lighting on these and your re-enactment photos?

    Both days I was lucky to have overcast skies and diffused sunlight. For the WWII pics that is all I used. For the pirate pics, I used a single umbrella and speed light.

    I process in Lightroom 4. I try different duotoni and then adjust clarity slider and fill light appropriately. I do the texturing with layers and blending modes in Photoshop.
