Enjoy!

I think this is a wonderful, detailed rendition for a gallery wrap. Do you think this works better than the original photo?

Better, I am not sure. That is subjective. I like to be creative. It lends an artsy look to it. Thanks for looking.

Ir really like the treatment here, so detailed. The pose is great and the surrounding splayed leaves complement the splayed display feathers nicely.
