overprocessed .. i think not ..
this irked me somewhat as its pretty much cropped, sharpened, a bit of saturation, curves and a very subtle vignette ..
i cant get any nearer to these birds as they are very timid .. so for the impact i have to crop ..
when i see a lot of the images that are put in the challenges .. then the amount of processing i did to this would qualify as very minimal ..
go figure ..

here's the original ..

This is amazing Roz! It was one of my favorites in this really difficult challenge! We have a birdbath, and I could sit for hours and watch the birds play.. Iím with you also about defending the minimal processing you did on it. I donít see that at al! But, I got the same comment by the same person on my very minimally processed image entered in this challenge too.

I think itís marvelous!

seems overprocessed -- would like to see what the original looks like. Cool looking bird, though!-6-

Beautiful image; the bird is nice and sharp and I love the green bokeh complementing the foreground so nicely.
