Had I noticed this happening sooner, I'd have framed it better, and it would be one of my favorite pictures.

Alas.

It's a little girl touching the plumage of a peacock.

Oh I'm reading the comments.
I think that photoshop could enhance the qualities of a shot, not makin a great shot from a shitty pic.
I think this one is a beautiful and natural shot, and not overphotoshopped.
The shadows make the white lines of the feathers "shine", and it looks like they are trying to reach the hand of the girl. I think they give a sense of movement. On the other side, the warm light on the girl's hand creates a good spot, the attention conveys here.
The bokeh in the background is good too..and the greenish tones make a beautiful contrast with the hand.

Well, it seems I have written something like a critique :S

Awesome. I agree definately should be one of your favourites. I think the shot would have been ruined if it was in direct sunlight. Those types of pictures are too common, so it's nice to see it from a different perspective and perfect amount of arm :D using vignetting also I see:D. I'm in lightroom rehab myself, trying to cut back as much as possible

I suppose, I just feel like it looks too obviously photoshopped.
