Happy Thanksgiving!!!

And here’s the original Tom…

Tom Turkey Displaying

The top image was made within Photoshop using the Mehdi Kaleidoscope 2.1 free plug-in and then a little bit of the Twirl filter was applied to twist the center feathers.  I then made a second image/crop of the head and made a smaller Kaleidescope image that I embedded into the center of the large image.   I especially like the effect when the resulting photo at first looks abstract, but with closer examination you can see parts of the animal used to create the Kaleidescope!

The original image was made in my backyard with a Canon 7D and 70-200mm f/2.8.

Thanks to Denise Ippolito (www.DeniseIppolito.com) for alerting me to the Kaleidoscope plug-in which can be found at: http://www.mehdiplugins.com/english/kaleidoscope.htm.
