aus nsw Newcastle swans dsc04881 edit 3 poster

At the end of the day, geocaching, we found ourselves in Blackbutt park in Newcastle. Here there are many animals and birds. The swans are the lucky ones and have their freedom.

I am not normally one for major distortions. So this is an early experiment in this technique. I used the grid distortion tool in PSP-X to expand the center, it is quite crude in application. I have also squashed the image vertically to make the resulting swans appear more realistically proportioned. They had become quite tall after the first application.

And the original photo.
