I love the idea here. The pattern of the iridescence just turns out to be far to distracting and manufactured looking (perhaps because it was an aggressive crop on the original). That said, I think I would have liked this much more if you just cropped this much more tightly around the bird. The iridescence is just far too dominant and seems to be the subject of the photo.
