It was started in the gray-tones but liberty took precedence over impression. Thanks for looking. -H.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Believable?

Yes believable! I might tweak the bird on our left. Where his neck joins the body. In the photo it seems lower and a bit more gradual in the joining. Also in the photo that guys feathers seem a bit fluffier - more volumne to him.
Its a lovely soothing piece.

Harry, more greens and deeps in the foreground will make this a real winner.

Lovely and soft!

I like the limited palette and your treatment of the background. The birds are very well done; terrific balance between the two of them. It's a shame the photo isn't larger....it would be great to get a closer look.

Long time no see Huggable Harry! :wave: Nicely done here...maybe extend the tail on the egret on the left just a little. :)
