When Gravity Fails | Starling

A starling cuts loose from gravity,
an avian comic falling past a deadline
into ratings oblivion.

  4. Wow, your pictures are truly amazing, I hope to reach that level one day. Is there post-processing involved, and if yes, with what software? To quote a liric: You take my breath away:) Posted 11 years ago
  5. Thanks Ludo. No, not much post-processing, I use Lightroom & Photoshop. Some sharpening on this, and making it a bit more of monochrome. Too much color sometimes gets in the way. Posted 11 years ago

The common starling or European starling (Sturnus vulgaris), also known simply as the starling in the British Isles, is a medium-sized passerine bird in the starling family, Sturnidae. It is about 20 cm (8 in) long and has glossy black plumage with a metallic sheen, which is speckled with white at some times of year.
