This was taken a while ago in South Africa. Decided to give it some Topaz impression magic, but backed off on fully converting it.Hope you like it.

The textures you achieved here are delightful, not overdone. The head of the bird makes the image for me — incredible color, form, and texture. The eye and the hairdo are just wonderful. Well done, Peter.

Elvis would be jealous of that hair, Peter! These are such crazy birds and you've created a really colourful, striking and fun artwork here. Nice one!

What a wonderfully wild rendition- this brings out the crazy colors without completely obscuring the eye and body. Well done!

Pretty cool! The eye really makes it shine.
