Birds in the Tree was photographed on a blue sky morning. It is with skies that are cloudless that I enjoy finding minimalistic images. When I first arrived, this tree was full of birds and slowly each one started to fly away. I waited until I felt the overall image had a nice balance between the branches and the number of birds. This image was the one I captured. I then added texture overlays and did some final processing within Nik Color Efex 4.
