    Beautiful Image Awesome colors.

    I would play a little bit with the background colors, May be a bit more vibrance / Saturation (Personal Taste)

    You've done it again, king of the portraits. The SH and sharpening is to perfection, not to mention the colors. Another "JP" classic... TFS

    The BKGR colors look grreat to me. You did reaally well with a potentially awkward image design. And the yawn is mega!

    Love the color and pattern of those feathers. The open bill is great. Nice and sharp with a great background.
