This is lovely! The warm light on the dove and clouds is gorgeous! Also, the dove is nicely posed and detailed. A nice composite replacing the sky and you provided just enough texture using Topaz Impression to maintain some of the important detail in your subject. Excellent work, Joel.

Beautifully done, Joel. I like the texture you've chosen for the dove, and the pretty light. The "new" sky works very well with the lighting on the dove, and the whole thing is very sweet to see. :)

Very nice composite. As Ron related, the warm light on the dove combined with the clouds in the sky make for an interesting image. Well done.

I think this is beautiful! You have created a wonderful mood with the pose, almost twilight sky and warm light giving a melancholy air to your artwork, as befitting the 'Mourning Dove'. Love it, Joel!
