The Japanese Maple outside my study holds birds for pictures throughout the year - this was taken last March and processed today.
Nice composition ...
thanks very much Don
I love the touch of red.
Your treatment is very good for this snow scenery and the bird is super !
Many thanks for your kind comments @Mond, @BarbMc and @m.pierrealarie. I appreciate them.
I'm lovin' this bird too.
Outstanding capture Flick ......the red really pops.
From start to finish a really great image. Nice job, Flick.
Everything is so right about this. There is a little noise in it when enlarged and I betcha Denoise would take care of it. This is a stunning image. and beckons to be on the wall.
Thanks very much for your comments @ellemat2, @BobKramer, @Warren1934 and @Michigander. @Michigander, I had missed the noise - treated it with a mixture of DeJpeg and DeNoise and got rid of most of it - see what you think
Did smooth but this is such an awesome image, from the start, and the little noise did not distract at all.
Still great image. I failed to notice the noise in the original, that speaks to the quality of the (before) image.
Wow....very nice....love it!
What an amazing, detailed picture. Sometimes the best photographs occur right in your own backyard. Wonderful work!
Glad this was brought to the front again. It is a fabulous image!!!
@XiaoLin - thanks very much for your comments, and Wayne, (@Michigander) I am very glad that you still like this image. It is fun to look at things after a fairly long time to see what you still like and what is just so-so.
What a nice image and how lucky are you to have such activity going on just outside your window.
I love my study window - makes it easy to spend hours in front of the computer working on images. I'm glad you liked it.
