About the Image(s)

I snapped several shots of this little bird and then combined them in Photoshop. Then I played with some of the Topaz Studio 2 filters. I just got Topaz and am having a lot of fun with it!

So striking and lovely!!
I think your treatment is perfect for your little friend! Only one suggestion is that, for me, I'd love to see just a bit more "breathing room" around the margins.
I do love the use of the digital frame too!   Posted: 01/14/2021 17:20:59

Maryellen, You've done a remarkable job creating a beautiful art piece here. The composition is very pleasing and your handling of the textural background is outstanding.   Posted: 01/14/2021 17:21:10

Maryellen, how bright and cheerful this is and what a great idea to repeat the various stances in one image! You put it all together in one appealing composite for us to smile.

I, for one, have no suggestions that could improve this.   Posted: 01/15/2021 14:01:25

Excellent image! I love the angle of the branch, the colors and textures. The different actions of the bird(s) are so sweet! My only suggestion might be to make the tiny brown dots on the branch a little more random.   Posted: 01/17/2021 00:17:13

I love the little birds all lined up and the artistic effect applied. Whimsical and creative. The colors and expressions are awesome!!!

I would clone out the repeating nub in the branck that it a tell tale composite artifact, and if you can bring in just a little more of some of their tails.   Posted: 01/17/2021 14:54:30
