Nice image and isolation. The wing tips look a little faded though - was it because of the isolation process? Also I would have put an oval marching ants round the subject, put a large feather on it and then with a brush faded the post away from the edge of the image. This would give it more balance top to bottom. To enhance further I would put a Stroke border of about 2pixels around the image. This was suggested to me on a mono giraffe image a couple of days ago and it made all the difference.

Just my thoughts

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your thoughts.The fade of on the tail is just where the flash didnt quite reach,this shot hasn't had any photoshop work.But I will give your fading to black idea a go and let you see the result
