One of our famous Australian birds is the Kookaburra.

I went out to the Caloundra Golf Club, not far from where we live.
At 4pm daily, they feed the wildlife.
One can see many differant types of birds as they feed. Parrots, Waterbirds, Doves, and Kookaburras, come here daily.
It is a wonderful experience to see.

hey shez, a nice shot. however, i think agree with the comments about the processing. you have a very recognizable, signature style that works very well on most of your images. however, here, with the detail in the bird and other textures, it seems a bit much. i'd like to see with a little less smoothing

Seems to me that you use a bit to much contrast resulting in white lines beside the dark ones.

Nicely balanced composition, but the high-contrast paint-brush filter hasn't really worked well here.

This seems very contrasty and a bit ovesharpened perhaps

I think you overcooked this in post-processing.

I think a bit too bright, but such a nice close-up!
