I actually have an old image that's quite similar to this. Same bird. Different angle and crop. I think I like this one better.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, dodged window reflection, vignette, resized, Topaz Detail.

7/28 - Wow! I'll have to give Shaka an extra treat for being such a good model. Thanks very much for all the votes and comments :-)

So elegant and stylish, yet still emotionally involving. Wish the retina hadn't reflected the venetian blinds, or whatever that is.
