Wow, he's an attractive guy! Crazy how his eye changes colors! It looks like your background colors were really interesting also, and the texture adds to the separation. As always, your work is spectacular and creative!   Posted: 09/06/2021 18:42:37

Well done texture add. Lovely, clear shot of the eye and surround with beak illuminated.   Posted: 09/06/2021 19:34:18

Love the texture that you have chosen really suits. Colours around the eye are great, also always love a little light in the eye. Good one Candy.   Posted: 09/07/2021 04:34:13

Candy, you are a master at this technique and once again you have produced a winner. The breeding plumage, color of the eye and angle of the beak all combine to make this a perfect shot.   Posted: 09/10/2021 12:45:25

Really nice work Candy.
I find that the right to left image flipping as well as the texture you apply on the background really enhance the beautiful head and breading colors.
This is a good demonstration of raising photography to an art form. Perfect technique in addition to an artistic eye. Beautiful!   Posted: 09/12/2021 14:46:08

The alterations to the background are a very nice addition to the piece. It makes it feel like a painting.   Posted: 09/21/2021 15:12:17
