These abstract nature images (mostly birds) were created in 2011. All of these begin with a photograph, normally taken with my "blunderbuss" gear: a Canon 1DMk3 digital camera body plus a 500 mm lens and sometimes with a 1.4X teleconverter. After the image is downloaded, I import it into Photoshop and from there use various filters to achieve the effect I want. For birds, I am seeking to use abstract impressionist techniques to enhance a feature such as shape, wing detail, head geometry, flight dynamics, or habitat. For landscapes, I try to enhance compositional features or tonal color.
