I was at Zoo Miami the other day and the Painted Storks were building their nests high up in the trees of the Aviary. With all the branches, netting, poles and other distractions, the only way to have a nice image was with digital art. After cloning away the distractions, I added a few textures and several filters from Color Efex 2.0
