You know how much I love birds... :giggle: I captured this little beauty whilst camping at the Murray river with family & friends.. I spent a lot of time bush hiking with my beloved camera, snapping away happily... I hope you enjoy it!

EDIT: Woah... thank you all for the support here! I'm so happy you like it. I've been getting soo many notes and questions it's hard to answer them all...

Firstly it is a real photograph, I always shoot in the warmest White Balance, I usually shoot these birds as sunset because that's when they begin to come out... And the colors are so much warmer then. I used a telephoto lens as I can't get close to these birds, but the lens isn't responsible for finding, and being creative with these photos. Don't always think it's the camera that is 100% responsible for creative photos, a lot of thought/creativity goes into them!


:heart:

This picture is amazing. I say that, because when I first seen it, I thought that tree branch was a hand. The picture was small when I first seen it, but even now...I can still see a hand. It's like nature is holding that little bird :) Great job!

How is asking going to cause a person to be banned? (And I suppose I missed that to so forget I asked about it before. I do know now.)

:iconwhimsical-dreams:
Whimsical-Dreams Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012   Photographer
I haven't said anything about being banned for asking to use a photograph, it's when you right click without asking that it becomes ART THEFT. Plus I have copyright messages all over my dA page, so it's not hard for anyone to read and see I am not a stock artist.
If you browse dA you will find many/most artists have copyright messages on their deviations or userpages. I'm sure if you ask them if it's ok to "use" their finished work they will be a little annoyed, or maybe more than annoyed when they clearly state their work is Not stock.
dA is not a stock website, it is a site for artists to share their work. I don't think it's beyond reason to ask people to respect that. (I honestly think you should read the dA rules, it really will make everything here easier to understand.)
This site does have stock artists for artists who wish to use their work for photomanipulation/digital art, they clearly state they are stock artists. They also state if you DON'T credit them they will take their own action, because the original work/photograph is their art and hard effort.
To me if you are a true artist you will understand that, it's not hard at all. Many people strive to make a living from their art, I myself have a small photography business.

I think you'd be very surprised at the length many artists will go to protect their art, I actually recently read about a dA professional photographer suing an art thief. That is extreme, but this photographer makes a living from her photography. She shares her photographs on many sites to gain interest/work. As an artist/photographer I understand this, her work has to be seen and hopefully admired to receive interest or possible clients.
Having said all that it's really not hard for people to be original and make their own art. I started on dA at 15 drawing silly little manga pictures, and from there I progressed to experimenting with a little point and shoot digital camera. If I can do it, so can anyone else.

I could go into that it seems he was just asking. (Though if you saw he did take it, never mind.)

I can try to tell you (again) that I agree that people shouldn't take the art... Unless it is stated you can. There's at least one guy on here who does provide stock.

However, if you don't understand that by now after how many times I said it, I won't bother to mention it again.

I've stated many times that I DO agree with you. You don't seem to believe me. Alright then.

Seems I didn't read yours well enough... Sorry.

Also, please note that I am NOT saying he has any right to take it nor should he. I'm not trying to have a say.

I just misread and jumped to conclusions.

Sorry...

I never said you should let him use it.

I was merely wondering why you're threatening a ban on him for just asking.

You of course have every right to tell someone not to use what you create. I never said other wise.

Restating your copyright and disclaimer info was all that was needed. The ban threat was very heavy-handed.

You assume everyone is as attentive as you when that might not be the case. Or perhaps he was hoping there could be an exception.

It does seem you're not even reading what I write. Just automatically assuming I'm against you and your desire to stop art theft.

I don't like art theft either. You might still not believe me, but I still feel I must say that this is not about you telling him no. It's about the harshness in which you did so.

If you simply don't reply, maybe I can put this behind me, but again, to be sure, you may want to block me to help me not be tempted. This is not a threat. Just me knowing myself and how I obsess.

I am sorry if I seem a pest or if it seems like harassment, but I really want you to consider not aiming your gun at strangers when they're just being meek and their worst crime is negligence.
