Photography: Color, Digital, Manipulated on Canvas.
This photo is actually two photos merged together in Photoshop. This is difficult to do, to merge two so that you can still see both photos, but that they also together make an interesting composition. Then too, there are a lot of little corrections to make (ajusting color and brightness and contrast), more than usual.
The inspiration for this photo came when the gallery owner where my photos are here in Mexico told me that, for the average buyer of photography here, boats and birds sell. So I was determined to make a photo art piece that combines the two If you look hard at the top of the photo you can just make out the boats.
These photos were taken at Lake Chapala, Mexico. One was taken at San Luis Soyatlan on the west side of the lake and the other was taken at Petatan, a peninsula fishing village that sticks out on the south side of the lake. Each year, from November through March, thousands of pelicans make the journey from Canada to the shores of Lake Chapala. At the end of the day, the fishermen throw out the useless heads and tails of their catch and all the pelicans scramble to get a piece of fish.
I have listed the size as 20 x 24, but the photo could be much larger, so if interested in a larger size, check with me for a price.
