Just a simple portrait of a Peregrine Falcon.  I think it is such a beautiful bird, I left the painting as simple as possible.  :) 

From my original photo, painted with PS and Topaz.

Striking portrait Carol! I love how all the beautiful colors and features of this bird are enhanced in the painted version. Your composition and expression are impeccable....as usual. :). This makes me think of a sculpture or wood carving of the bird-it is so lively and three-dimensional.
Superb!

What a beautiful image, Carol. The pose and eye contact are excellent. And I love the subtle painting and the detail revealed in the plumage. An all round wonderful image, and it's one of my favorites of yours!

I normally don't even go to "Photo & Digital Art", but after seeing this masterpiece I will visit more often. Amazing job.
