Not totally sure that the background suits the bird, but it does make for an intriguing image. I like the toning and there is so much detail in the feathers viewed large. Overall an impressive image Victor.

Dave's right Victor, the feather detail is quite amazing. The tone you've chosen suits the image and the whole thing is full of intrigue. Nice work again. ATB

this is a strong image, there's the stare of the bird, oozing menace. And the mystery and age of the background, -what dread secrets lie hidden?

i do like this!!

Hi Victor,
Where are all your comments, this is a first. I usually log on to find pages full. I love this image, the detail on the vulture is excellent. Love the tones as well. Stunning work as usual - you never let me down.
Love Tanya

Patrick, was relatively straight forward, background shot was actually from a indiana jones stage show in florida! and the vulture from Amsterdam zoo, very meticulously cut out and montaged and then the photo was toned. Only two layers and one mask.

cheers victor
