    Rollin, I love the concept. I think I'd like crisper edges around the wings. And I think he either needs to be straight or more tilted. Just my perspective.

    Very cool detail!!!!

    Thank you Gretchen, I agree the wing's edges are to blurred. I am afraid I got a little bored and posted this image knowing it was not very good. Just having fun with the Photoshop Plug-in.

    I think I read somewhere that if something is to be tilted in a photograph, anything less than about 10 tilt can too easily be mistaken as an error. Don't know if it applies in this case but I do see what you mean about the look.

    Nice technique Rollin!

    I think this is one of those times when nature is the better source for an image. See original image of a Western Pondhawk from which the altered image was taken.

    I played. I like your original better, I think?

    Tiffany style is all in the lighting, IMHO. NOW, you've given me another challenge to figure-out in PSE --thanks!
