    Nice birdie! I love kookaburras! We've got heaps here too which is a good thing!

    I like your PS work! and the crop really helps it. you may have done a little too much sharpening... maybe try increasing the radius when you use the Unsharp mask and you may get a nicer look to that beak.

    I like the PSed version and I like kookaburras in general. They have such a funny look and make adequate sounds, koooo-ka-huahahahahaaaaa :D.

    As to the sharpening: I look away from the original and then think, whoa! So crisp, so clear. Lovely colours too (in the background). I like it. Yessss. :)

    I remember this shot. I liked it then, but your edits definitely strengthened it. Very good crop - brings us right up to the little guy. And nothing is overly sharpened, and the colors remain true. :thumbup:

    Good job!
