    I'll take this one several years ago in Cape town. I scanned it from negative and made some levels' changes in Gimp.
    Any opinion ?

    edit > I tried to make again the image resizing and to sharpen a bit more. I think it's a little more graphical, like painting, but I'm not completely happy with my changes. Here it is :

    colors and composition are very nice. the focus is a bit out for me.

    thanks for comments. I know it's out of focus. But I like the picture anyway because of the colors' harmony and the composition. I tried to take several pictures of this bird, but only this one was quite good to be seen. It's really difficult to make good photos with animals which are always moving :roll: .

    I made changes on the 1st version (see the 1st post).

    I like the composition and the colors, but I've never been a fan of a soft-focused subject. The shallow DOF is very nice.
