Good use of selective colouration to make the eyes really stand out, maybe just a tad noisy on the bground in the large version but easily cured Smile.

Hi Lauren, I had a go at removing the noise using a program call Neat Image. What I did was select the bg & put it through neat image at 100%, that I think killed the bg noise, I also trimmed the beak a bit & it was well over grown, this is something the keeper will need to do for real sometime.

Cracking shot of a beautiful bird. I like the way you kept the eye detail, looks really good.

Stunning shot, the eyes are so mesmerising that I didn't even see the noise.
