Hello everyone! 😎📷
Sunday is my day for collages and here's entry to the Let's Make a Collage - A Contest for All Creatives on Hive - Round 197 - 45 HIVE in the Prize Pool!
What did I want to see in the base image? Today's collage is about biodiversity, especially birds. Did you know that there are over 13,000 protected areas in the world dedicated exclusively to birds? These are called Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) and are developed and managed by BirdLife International as a global partnership of non-governmental organizations that are dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitats.

Well, I imagined an islet close to the shipping lanes of the big ocean-going trading ships. Two of them have even stopped, and people are on them to observe this nature reserve. There are a lot of different birds on it, but they are only here occasionally because there is not much food, so let's say it's a resting place for them, and then they fly on.

The creation process
I made the collage in Photoshop. First, I created a background from the base image. I removed everything except the rocks and water and added the ships and the cloudy sky. All the other objects, the birds, I processed first and then added to the background in layers.
Hope you have fun!

There has been a lot of development in Hive core but documentation is outdated and updates are needed. So I invite you to support and vote for Hive devportal updates proposal by @good-karma.
Thank you in advance.
