Electric Blue Emu
One of the Emus at G-land.
Fract, Topaz adjust
The Phoenix (Emu) rising from the ashes...Fractalius lends that sense of flame and color to this shot...I like that you masked the eye back in...I wish there was just a hint of color/detail in the beak as well...nicely done!
Maureen,. The effect is perfect! I love the flow of the feathers that the glow has added. Nice background too. A tiny bit more detail to the beak if you have it as John noted.
Beautiful composition, Maureen. I too think the fract is very effective... love the colors. Nice processing.

Hi Maureen, another great fracting job. Love the effect on this one too.
Thanks all. Not sure how much detail I could or want to recover in the beak. Emu beaks are black. And ugly.
This Emu looks playful to me--due to the position of the head and your excellent processing!
