Blue-bellied roller

By MikeRC
Hello again...I am so disappointed with the effectiveness of the majority of my shots I decided to do some computer work on this pic to try and obtain the results that many of you get straight from the camera.
Does this work?
Your comments, constructive and otherwise would be appreciated.

Many thanks...Mike

Think the clouds look a little to sharo on the one Mike, the rust coloured area at the bottom of the post is a little distracting as well. I find myself looking at it wondering what it is.
But don't get me wrong it's still a great effort...Ade

Thanks Ade, I can do any background, (grin)
Is it better with clouds (more whispy)
to signify sky or a greeny woodland background?...Mike

I think its a very nice composition of this beautiful bird. Personally I would have lightened the bird a tad and increased the contrast. A catchlight in the eye would really bring it to life
