I am quite happy with the score on this one - will not win or place, but quite satisfactory :) However, I will be asking for help on the editing - showing you the original and perhaps a revision based on two comments suggesting the head is too dark. I actually lightened it quite a bit - even more than this - and then took it back down because I was afraid it didn't look natural. I appreciate any frank feedback you may offer.

Here's the original.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/135000-139999/138630/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1197276.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/135000-139999/138630/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1197276.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

And here's a revision with a slight shifting of the light. ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/135000-139999/138630/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1197743.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/135000-139999/138630/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1197743.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
I know I didn't go as far as some suggested, but I went as far as I felt comfortable and I do think the new light feels better balanced.

A commanding capture, but cries for light on his face rather than his feathers.

It looks like you brightened the body, but not the head in post. Why? That seems like an odd choice.
