    Very effectively composed and processed. The textures are wonderful, and the vignette is beautifully done.
    “ . . . The executional characteristics of the image should not be the first thing you notice when you look at the photograph: you can overdo it. They should support the compositions, but not detract or outweigh it. This is one of the things I don’t like about overdone HDR, Instagram and other photo apps – the processing is so overdone to the point that fundamental compositional structure is overshadowed, and any flaws hidden. You only see the processing, and not the subject.” -- Ming Thien, in What makes an outstanding image? (part 1) on his blog, http://blog.mingthein.com, October 6, 2012

    Nicely composed..has almost a pen and ink quality to it from the processing....I like the strong detail and texturing in the head...I'd hate to wake up with that thing looking down on me!

    Joel, Nice details and I like the vignette. The B&W looks great. I do see what looks like some noise on the bird.

    I like all of this. I see the noise or grain on the body but I think it adds to this image. Well done Joel.

    I know this guy. He hangs out in the woods behind my yard

    Nice job with this, Joel. I like the B&W and your processing.
