Thanks for the kind words everyone. Its been almost a year since I've done a challenge. I should have Topazed it but I didn't realize at the time that it was allowable.This is my personal best score I believe.

Looking like they want to make even more baby Starlings ;-) Great detail and certainly an interesting pose. Looks like it could use a little contrast boost or darkening on the midtones and shadows. Just a little. Really a wonderful image.
