    Andreas, I am torn, my initial reaction was no, too bright. I looked again later and then I looked properly in PSCC. It certainly has some appeal but I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination so I guess I would prefer a more conventional presentation.

    thanx Jon for your comment , much appreciated .
    a conventional approach ... nope did not work with this base image . had it conventional and quickly went to this route .
    you are simply not artsy enough ..... .... but that is fully ok .

    cheers Andreas

    This works for me. My favorite part is the glowing see-through feet and some of the feathers. Excellent incoming landing pose. I'm far from artsy when it comes to Shakespeare, Broadway plays, and many of the obscure "art" out there, but when it comes to photography I'm all in...so this works for me

    Love, love, love the glowing light. Fabulously sharp for 1/200 sec. Only the wing tips bug me. Just for fun, I'd love to see a tight vertical crop. The feet are amazingly detailed.

    with love, and congrats on this fine image.
