They do sleep funny. The desat brings out a dimension in this that would be blown away by strong colors. Good stuff.

Beautiful image. Flamingoes are such a fantastic colour that you'd think conversion would lose too much - but in fact this is even more beautiful, with the emphasis on form and texture.

I love how the leg is going into the water and there's a ring around it. Looks like a weird, feathery lollipop! Excellent!
