A beautiful shot of the peacock which IMHO could not be improved on in any way.

One of the better Peacock shots Ive seen on this site Paul.

Excellent detail, beautiful pose, love the angle from the side.

I would think that it appears a little cold tonally, and benefits with a threshold and curves adjustment that allows the green hues to come through.

Though its a shame to crop this at all, it may look better with the head placed more to the left and a little higher as in the mod. Ive also increased saturation a little, and brightened the eye.

Hope you find this helpful,

Thanks for all the comments and I do like the mod banehawi, I might amend the original, sharpness and saturation however I dont like to edit too much.

Focus_man you have obviously never had any images stolen over the internet, when you have maybe you will consider putting a copyright mark on yours as well.

If the only critisism is that I have placed a copyright logo in the corner of the image then I am a happy man.

Thank you all for your support and comments.
