Lovely bird, lovely color - is it really this color?? I havent ever seen a spoon bill. I dont even think I have ever seen a real flamingo. This one is in a zoo? or wild with an ankle band? the pinks are amazing, and it's just perfect how the detail of the feathers is so visible. I love the odd position that the bird is in. Makes him have a life, climbing a tree, ready to fly.

Greetings,
Wow exceptional shot here, very cool effect I love the crisp colors and vibrant whites, you should think about offering a print of this up on DPCPrints, I think it would do well.

Comment by emorgan49:
I really like the white whites of Mr. Tiger II. See how the white of his face and eyebrow make his gaze focused? In the BW version he is just spacing out, now he is really looking intently AT something. Gives him a purpose and creates some tension in his forelimbs like he might get up and get it. The increased whites makes his hands grip the ground. I think you have added some implied acton here, who cares if you lost a bit of fur detail?

Very nice edit - the color is great and I like what you've done with the background to bring the focus to the bird's beautiful colors.

Comment by Dr.Confuser:
You've started with a well exposed photo SOOTC. That's a great start. Clearly your second attempt is much improved over the first one. for all the reasons stated inthe comments. One of the things about the second attempt is that you have used your tools with a lighter touch. I like to think of these tools a little bit like cod liver oil. A little may be good, but often more than a little produces unintended consequences!

Nice job onthe second edit especially!

Comment by Tallbloke:
Yup, nice improvement but i still prefer the original crop. Nose here is much much better. The splodge of green behind his head still detracts for me in the way the original crop doesn't. I think it's because I understand what it is in the wider crop but here it's a bit confusing.

You've made life hard for yourself here by taking a brown horse against a brown stable wall so he will tend to merge into the background.

Take him outside next time or paint the stable white

Comment by pidge:
wow! very nice. Nice to see the details in the nose now. Not much for me to add at this point. Maybe clone out the patch of green by it's ear? On second thought, never mind, it's fine as is

Comment by armelle:
Following good previous comments is hard :) I do agree that this photo is the best of all three. I like the new crop and the image is not too sharp now. I'm myself learning to play with dodge and durn (I know it works better in B&W) but I wonder if the slightest of dodging might help as well? Maybe a 2-3% on some parts of his mane and his skin to bring out highlights? Maybe you could also burn a bit of the stall to make it fade in the background? Outside of those minor details, well done!!!
