obsessions

We all have our little obsessions. My current obsession with photography is playing with photos and combinations, namely feathers and birds. I don't think I have it quite right yet, but the root of my idea is to create images that use feathers to represent trees. Here's what I have so far (keep in mind that I am just learning how to combine multiple photos into one image). 

Same feather and bird images as above, but with an photo of ice used as the background
 


I'm trying to create a feeling of release and/or freedom. Any thoughts?

There's something that keeps drawing me to the first two. Maybe it's the shaped of the feather. Or, maybe it's the single feather. Although cold and colorless, I'm surprised at how much I really do love the second one.
Interesting concept.

That looks like a fun project to me!

Not seeing the tree metaphor yet in these pics but love the last one as depicting "release" ... it's as if the three birds are escaping ...
