Hi Aidan. The effect on the water is done with a filter called pixel bender. The feathers were brought out by painting on various seperate blank layers, using a graphics pen, with black/white to enhance the shadows and highlights and also the details. Tedious but very theraputic Smile

Superb composition combined with shallow dof and processing - giving them that expanse of soft blue ripples to look into.
