Caught this blue tit chick five minutes after leaving the nest today. PS work as follows:
usual levels, contrast etc; sharpened around the eyes and beak; blurred front and rear branches to isolate the bird even more; used "multiply" layer around the outside for same effect; cropped. Hope people like, this is my first entry for a long while.

Lovely image.. Nice capture of this youngster. The one point I find distracting is the bright white area above him/her. Cloning that out would have made this a 10!

This little guy doesn’t look exactly like a taxi driver. Nicely done.

Photography is very good. For me, the model though lacks cuteness and the bright spot in the background could be dimmed somewhat. A 7.

What a grumpy looking little bird! This is a very nice capture, but it looks a little bit soft to me.

Heh, I didn't know a bird could scowl. Its a great photo. The tip of his beak seems a little fuzzy and the bright white spot over his head is somewhat distracting though. That could be edited out easy enough. Good job :)
