This stands out really well against the black background but you do need to take more care with the editing. The boundary around the bird is very harsh and blocky &mdash, zoom in and use a softer brush. Having made the background black, it's easy to add a bit more space at the top, too, so he won't bash his head on the frame when he moves. Smile

Very good capture. V1 looks excellent. The effect of the black background is fantastic.
Excellent color. A magnificent set.

Good shot. Following on from DRicherby's comments - you have also been a bit aggressive with the lower beak....

Stunning detail with his feathers
Brilliant colour and good feather detail. Stands out well against the black.

Interesting comment about the lower beak (James-C) - if you compare V1 and V2 I haven't done a thing to it!

Good colour and detail,V1 for us.

Nope — some of the beak has gone missing, between his head and where it crosses his body. I've posted a mod with it highlighted in red. (In retrospect, probably not the best choice of colour but I think it's clear enough.)

What a fabulously coloured bird Joan - #1 for me today - well detailed...Bill

By the way, I think it's actually a scarlet ibis (Eudocimus ruber). Flamingoes are rather larger and have the characteristic L-shaped beak.

Great shot.well done.

Thanks for the mod - see my mistake now and thanks also for the identity. I wasn't sure when I put flamingo and now you've pointed it out it's obvious. Live and learn and nil desperandum!!
