Thanks everyone for the support with yesterdays image, more work was required! So I've taken a lot more time over this one.

This is my second attempt at the peacock. I processed it in Rawshooter, then in Photoshop. I've cloned out the "red thing", which I think is some kind of first aid box. I've removed all the noise I could from the background, leaving more bandwidth for the detail in the feathers. Ive done some selective sharpening on the bird. Cropped some dead space from the top and then added a border. Can't wait to get a photo of one of these creatures in spring.
All comments very much appreciated.
Have a good weekend.
