Thank you very much Gummy, SwashB, and Doc.
Thanks, Armatien. I particularly enjoy working the bird chops. Glad you like it.
I like the uncluttered simple scene. It has a nice appeal to the eyes but I'm glad it's not my eye in that crow's beak.
Excellent work... somewhat horrified to see the eye ball drop but the mood for the chip needs this good rain effect also
Hoe to create a masterpiece starting from low value sources. Great.
Another well composed chop with wonderful tone, mood, and lighting I have to admit I didn't notice the floating body until after seeing your sources The eyeball and its guts, especially with the dark outline, are somewhat sharp in contrast to the slight blur and soft edges of the bird. High Marks nonetheless.
Thanks Gumster, and Joan. Most everyone's first question is "who's eye is that" So I attempted to answered that with the source images.
Thanks very much Raj. I always enjoy your in-depth observations. Thanks, Lu. Yes the quality source for the bird was good, but yeah..I had to brush out almost every feather, and added some Dodge/Burn Highlights. Thanks Eagle Eye Billy. Yes I had a little trouble getting the eye to suit.. finally popped a bit of FX around it. In contrast to the BG seemed to be the best of many ways I had attempted.
Very impressive, and a bit spooky. Kinda done in the best traditions of Edgar Allan Poe
Congrats on the silver Splat,I love the lighting,mood,feel and subtle Beauty of this.Like Newsmaster says,has an awesome Poe feel to it
Fantastic work. Reminds me of that surfing bird song "well its the bird- bird- bird, the bird is the word"... Silver congrats

Nicely done ... I like the tone and the lighting ... that's quite the balancing act.
Thanx Gummy. He probably will. Thanx QMS. I think that boa constrictor maybe giving her little bit of incentive to stay fixed upon her perch. Thanx 420. strange is good. Freak Show Ba.....by.
This is awesome, but I ain't parking my car next to this bird.
. Thanks Newsmater... Hope you like it after the revisions..you stamped FN logo over her nest and eggs. grrrrrr
Thanks very much Elegary. many textures here. Thanks Joan... I think the Boa brings in a lot of the drama. Took me a lot of searching to find a straight snake that I could manipulate over that limb.
Hey I knew that snake when he didn't have a pit to hiss in.
Amazing chop,good collaborator the mask and back feather.....
Impressive and anguishing. Something is happening but we don't know what it is.
Thanks, Sulli, Gummy, Eric and Balo. Thanks, Lu. I understand. Possibly just leaves a bit to the imagination.
Congrats on the silver, Splat. Like the revisions too.
Thanks Everyone. I wasn't sure about mixing theses textures to build the background. Turned out well I'd say. Thanks to you guy/gals..Thanks.
It is a beauty. You merged two centuries of photography with this. It looks like a Daguerreotype, hand colored. Congrats on the silver. Beautiful artwork
Thanks again Everyone. This was a fun contest. Always Lurking Thanx Jeremix.
