The post processing went something like this:

Converted RAW file in Nikon Capture NX
Colorized something like a mustard color at about 35% opacity
Contrast and Brighten
Repeat the last two steps
Opened in CS2
Levels, various adjustments in R,G, and B
Highlight tool to reduce the blown out areas which were deep black before inverting
Resize for DPC specs

I don't think that I could duplicate the post processing if I wanted to.

Nice job and subject choice. Congratulations on top 10.
I was going to do a peacock but decided on the courthouse instead.
Appears both subjects were equally received well by the voters. ;)

Hey top 10, not too shabby Robert, congrats :D This must look wonderful in a larger size, there looks to be some nice detail on the feathers that's getting lost at this size.
