..i`ve come back because I am only realising now that you used the selective color process! that`s when you know you`ve done the process justice, when people get tricked and don`t even notice it right away! I thought it was a pure black & white the first time I commented. Excellent work Amanda!

Well done on POTW Amanda - thoroughly deserved. I misssed this 1st time round as I don't get much access to a pc at the moment, so glad I got chance to appreciate it. It's the texture of the bark contrasting with the patterns on the bird's body that is the icing on the cake I think.
Thank you Ange, and thank you everyone who voted for me. This is a very proud moment for me, especially being up against some very stiff competition.
Special thanks to Steve & Julie, Pacificphoto, Bclapper, Oly_M, rjvc, Ken, Bridget & tjr, Stewart, and Ana, who gave me constant encouragement and support; to my family and friends for tolerating my obsession; and to that person who introduced me to photography not so long ago.
