Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge

Two different applications of “merge” exist in this photo.  First, I created a digital merge with two different photos to show movement of the chickadee – on and off the bird feeder.  Second, I merged nature (the chickadee) and the performing arts (acrobatics) together into one concept.  I then applied a texture for the background.  The title I gave this image is “Avian Acrobat.”

When I saw the photo of the chickadee on the feeder, it gave me the thought of an acrobat with outstretched arms, trying to balance on a highwire.  I used the photo of the chickadee flying down off the feeder to give the impression of someone falling off the highwire.

Anyway, it was a fun project.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is to see what you can
merge in a photo!

  7. How clever to merge the two! Before I read your text the following lines to a song came to mind: ‘He flies through the air with the greatest of ease, the daring young (bird) on the flying trapeze’!

  8. A beautiful composite picture. I love how you have merged various element so seamless together. The warm almost non-existing colours are great. As always I enjoy visiting your blog.

  10. Your engaging and beautiful photograph so fluently merges the various elements you spoke of, in the same creative method you use with your poetry creating a photographic composition. Nicely done.
