thanks Frank, it was a first for me, probably the very first time I liked the shot before I took it, and then still liked it when I looked at it on the screen.

This is an awesome shot. Talk about a pretty scene that couldn't be any better if you had planned it.

I was inspired to see what could be brought out of this image with some artistic processing. I hope you don't mind. Some may find it over the top but if anything it shows how an image could be pushed further. If you like the results and want to try it yourself I can send you the PSD file for you to analyze.

OMG - it is beautiful Duck. You gave it punch, but you kept it from becoming garish (which with my over-love for saturation and such - gets me every time). Yes, would love to look at the layers, can you "drop-box" the psd or something?

Beautiful image Piet, wonderfully spotted and composed.

I like Duck's rays (I am a sucker for rays) and hope he'll share his method. For drama, that version wins out. For peace, your initial version wins out.

Since I"m more in need of peace right now, I'll stick with #1. Both great versions of a very good image.

Both versions are gorgeous. My favorite waaaaay overworked descriptive adjective is --- painterly. :thumbup:

Very generous and kind of you to say, Piet. I adore this original view. The bird is so tiny and delicate, for me it is better suited to this less-is-more version.

Love the color tone Piet !!! The title is appropriate and works very well with this image.
