Two on the Barbie

I swung through Lincoln Woods at lunch today, knowing that most of the park will be closed to traffic in about a month. When I parked next to one of the large fields near the beach area, I spotted a few house sparrows playing around on these two barbecue grills. The shadows and contrast were sufficient for me to compose this scene. Something about a couple of birds playing in and around a grill plays to my admittedly warped sense of humor.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, and boost black. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
