Nicely done. That is good light and a good pose.

Don't you just love their color?

Houston, I like the first one better, too. I think it looks more natural.

Good color and contrast on both photos. When it comes to sharpenning,
up to a point, it's pretty much a matter of taste. It also depends on
the overall scene and the effect that you the photographer want to impart to the viewer. Sometimes soft can be good, sometimes razor sharp is
might be what you want. Obviously, too much either direction is not good.
In the end, it's what pleases you that counts. With that said, personally, I think
somewhere between the two is where I would do it. Also, do you recall what
your sharpenning settings where?

Great shots! I would have done a touch less sharpening (just a touch) and brightened up the eye since this bird has a really nice eyeball.I tried brightening it and it can be brightened a bit without causing any disruption in pixels. Good ones Houston.

Thanks Woodmeister. For me personally I still like the first one.I was having a hard time trying to decide what I thought everyone else expected. That's the reason I asked. But no, I don't recall what the settings were, I just kept playing around.

I was kind of hoping someone would like a little less sharpening. And do you mean a little less than the first one which is not quite as sharp as the second one. Any btw I don't yet know how to brighten only the eyeball without affecting the whole pic. Do you know if that can be done in PS Elements 2.
