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!
