Trying some vignetting in LR for these bird shots. Did I overdo it?

i like it but i think for the vignette to look really good you should bring the image up a 1/4 stop and make the vigentte a little harder, like not as feathered i could post an edit of your image with what i am thinking of doing if that would be ok with you?

Needs more than 1/4 stop upped in exposure, but are too underexposed for me.
Second photo could use heavier vignetting.

1st photo too heavy in my opinion. It looks like some of it is cutting in on the bird.

I think you're right about that.

As far as underexposed I think you're just seeing how LR tends to downsize for the web.

I have not played much with vignetting, it always seems too obvious to me but I kind of liked the effect I got on the first shot, the anhinga spreading his wings. The halo of light around the bird. But I do think it is on him too much.

Lots of birds shots to play with for a bit. Thanks for the comments.

I don't think you over did it, it looks nice.
