OK, Roy, it looks oversharpened. Maybe not plastic, but somehow artificial. Maybe oversaturated?

The bird looks perfect to me. It is probably the upper and upper right side of the photo. What is that blue in the branch and parts of sky?

Definitely oversharpened. Looks like you blurred the background, or did a layer mask to block out the background from being sharpened and the edges around the tailfeathers show it (not quite clean enough edges - the background right next to the tailfeathers and around the bird's neckshow the effects). I've never quite understood what some mean by "plasticy".

Or else you "pushed" it because it was too dark and introducedlots of extra noise (ISO 400 isn't enough to cause that much), then blurred the background. In any case, it's not one of your better post-processing efforts. You take so many wonderful pictures, is there a reason you spent a fair amount of effort on this particular one?

Don't understand the reason for calling is looking plasticly,
it is a bit to sharp for my taste and as Gumnut says it looks sharpest on my lcd.

Don't dare to say anything about colour, I'm at work now and having a descent crt/lcd dual screen they are not calibrated.

I would not say plasticky but it does look a little oversharpened. Great shot though.

I agree with Gumnut, on my LCD it does look overdone, and maybe a trace of noise ... on the CRT it's fine I just wouldn't fault it. ... Jack
