Well i was playing in PSE2.0 lastnight..worked out good..

First i cloned out the feeder which was on the left,,then i added a gray graduated filter with nik,then i used the laso tool to highlight the birds throat,,,and hit Ctrl+L to adjust the gray level on his neck,,,,then it went to Noise Ninja for a little tweaking,,,then i resized it too below 250k..

So,,,,,,,,,,,what do you think..

Sure geoffs will see this...lol

Something doesn't seem natural here, I can't seem to pin point it.

LOL,,you wouldn`t think so if i didn`t tell you what i did though.....

Seems people will like something till they aretold it`s altered,,then they seem to shy away from it,,it`s human nature i think to do so......

I feel the same about pics when people alter them,,,still nice,,but i think i can see something wrong,,even though i can`t..

The only fault here is that i didn`t blend the gray graduated filter quite enough,could have spent more time,,but i was just playing..

The color seems slightly off to me, but color is a subjective thing since color can change in an instantdepending on what nature provides.in his one the leaves are competing with the bird for attention, probably because their intensity is similar to the subject bird. You might consider cloning out some of the surrounding leaves in order to isolate the bird more. As for color, I have no serious problem with it. Actually, this photo is looking quite nice, and without the feeder it looks more natural.

You're right, Brian, I did see this! Funny, funny...

Brian, this looks like a reworking of the picture you posted in your first posting to the Wildlife section. I think that the original image, just processed by NeatImage for noise reduction, had a better impact than this one. The graduated filter effect just doesn't do it for me.

It's still a great capture, though!
