    Nice and unusual shot of a colorful bird, Steve. It'd be neat to bring it into PS, and layer in a person, staring back, but very small! Kind of a spooky stare!

    Now that is an evil stare. Sort of reminds me of the look I get from SWMBO every time I mention a new lens.... 8)

    Good capture. :wink:

  5. Very cool Steve.........that bird looks like he sees some dinner!! :) :) :)
  6. Nice image Steve. It is good enough that I think I would spend a little PS time and clone out the post in the background. It's unusual that's for sure.
  7. Very cool I agree with Gordon spend a little time and clone out that post

    I'll run with Marilu's comment and take it farther, clone in a small human, like a shrunken man staring back up. As far as the look on the bird, my father has that look when I tick him off.

    Thnx everyone, but cloning out that post would be impossible

    These birds feed on my built in bench on my deck, and the rails are unavoidable. I challenge anyone who thinks the y can "clone" out that post, and have it look seemless, and undetecable! :)
