Nice blending

Thank you, blending had a lot to do with duplicating the layer and changing the blend mode. I did that a few times and I know I played with other layers as well to blend in and change lighting but I don't remember if I kept any of them or not.

I really like it... but something seems off to me i cant quite put my finger on it... ahh maybe because it resembles a photo with too much fill flash, in my mind based on background im expecting a darker bird? Idk but the balance is a little off for me, the birds left wing is a little bright and the face. Also maybe the white balance on the bird? I think thats it, could make this a 4 for me. Its too blue on the bird doesnt match the yellow/gold background? Just throwing some ideas around! cheers!

Good eye. Thank you for the critique. Background has the light source and I didn't take that into account The light source (along with photo angle) should have been the first thing I take into account.
