As you can see this one needs a lot of work. Sun on the wrong side of bird. Colors are off. Have fun with it.

This will be fun. I've saved to disk for playing later. :-)

Here's my try. Just don't look to closely or you'll see the plastic surgery scars! :-)

Very vivid! Nice treatment. The original is somewhat soft; nice in its own right. Yours is bold and appropriate for the bird.

photo_mage,

Very cool I didn't know you could do transplant surgery via photoediting. That looks much better with the wing added back in and some color brought out in the bird.

It will never be a work of art but it is looking much better.

There is a bit of a shadow if you look real close, but if somebody can magically turn the sky a dark blue that will covered.

Hey this is fun, and educational!

For this I first made a new layer and pasted another picture of some clouds I had. I then applied a layer mask to that new layer and with a medium size soft brush and opacity of 50% and a flow of 50% I scratched out some of the cloud layer to bring back the hawk. I then change the opacity to 100% and flow to 100% and more carefully went over the hawk to bring in the rest of the details.

Click the image for a higher quality one.

Pasted into PSP8
=
Contrast enhancement.
=
Canvas sized increased.
=
Copy taken of end of left wing, rotated, resized and blended in to finish off the right wing.
=
New layer. Background duplicated to fill space when canvas was expanded and the edges blended.
=
Saturation enhancement.
=
Layer merged and cropped.
=
Duplicated layer.
=
Edge preserving smooth level 2. Opacity 42%.
=
Duplicate layer of base layer sent to top. Edge preserving smooth level 10. Delete the bird with the eraser tool to give a clear background.

I'm not all that happy with my wing addition. It looks washy. I left on the noise and fringing. Removing the noise (the way I know how to) would ruin it and I don't know how to get rid of fringing. :lol:

So glad you're enjoying yourself!

choeschen, nice job! I like the scribble behind the hawk. Right up my alley.

Here's mine (reloaded on Friday to include the full photo):

Hm - can't see the left wing - is this an upload error or is this the way the image was taken? Any URL link for a high res image of that lovely bird zoomn?

The picture I posted at the top is the original image. Not that great a shot obviously that is why I submitted it here.

There is no higher resolution image that I am aware of. Yes the left wing is hacked off a few inches.
