Hi Ray

I have never got close to one of these let alone photograph it.

I have done a mod.

1. I have painted over the whiteish area on the LH side as I felt that distrcted a bit.

2. Cloned out some distraction in the bottom RH corner.

3. Using the overlay layer, darken the branch.

4. Flattened the layers.

Hope you like it.

A lovely capture and strong comp. I would however say the bg is a bit noisy when viewed, but not the bird thankfully. Lovely detail in the feathers and colours true to life imo.

What more can I say? Love it, particularly your capture of the gloss on the red feathers. We have a flock of these beauties working the local park, but they are so quick I stand no chance of getting one.
