Nice shot. The colours and the clean background are very pleasing. I hope you don't mind but I had a little play on photoshop to include the top of the wing in the image . . . .

It was all done using the cloning tool. I duplicated the original layer. Moved it to a more central position and carefully built up the rest of the image with the cloning tool. I've had no training on photoshop and I have no idea how to use 99% of the capabilities of CS5 but the tools I can use I've had lots of practice with. It's very rare for one of my best shots to have no photoshop work done to it. There's nearly always one niggling little detail that needs correcting.

Best regards,
Jason

Awesome shot. BTW, the less expensive pp software, Elements, can do the same. Still...nice work Jason.

Thank you both very much for your comments and for checking out my website. It feels wrong though taking praise on someone else's thread. This was a really nice shot to begin with and it had great potential.

Best regards,
Jason
