It's a nice sharp shot of the Kite but unfortunately the lack of any definition in the sky makes it look like it has been cut out and stuck on. This could be one of those occasions where it is worth cloning some clouds from another shot. Smile

A lovely image but quite a lot of noise visible. A quick pass through some noise reduction software will do wonders on this. I would suggest applying any noise reduction on a separate duplicate layer and then reducing the opacity with the image magnified to around 200% so that the noise just disappears.
