    I took this today. Hope I'm not breaking any protocol by posting a bird pic
    that I fooled with in Photoshop on the nature forum.


    Please, I am interested in any feedback you may have.

    Thanks in advance.

    I personally don't like the "matte
    look of the picture, but I do like the composition (personally). I thin if it was the original picture I would like it evcen more. It looks like the bird is about to race someone. Good capture

    Beautiful shot! I have to agree with Rahb though, I think I would like the original photo better. Nice detail, nice composition and I love the bird's stance... very nice shot!

    yup, me 2, I edit all my shots in PS, as most peeps do, but the finish on this shot takes away from the beauty of the bird. please post the original!

    Is that a finch?

    Thanks for the responses. I just need to try a few different things
    now and again. Below is the original before the texture was added.

    Now THAT is outstanding. I use the rule of thirds too religiously to have captured this shot as you have.......darn obsesive compulsiveness.......You either have perfect timing or great patience and a good eye. Either way Nice shot. I can't wait to get out in the outdoors and take some more nature shots. unfortunately I don't have a DSLR, just an SLR so I have to pay for developing and scanning :(

    whoa bill you original is awesome, i love the golden tones in the pic... i actually like the first one too... it is different, it looks like a mural that was airbrushed onto a textured wall and you took a pic of it...
