The Bird of Dawning

I rather enjoyed the shot I posted the other day and fancied putting another shot up of the same ilk.

This one has a slightly different treatment and feel to it, I think. It is much sharper, less surreal, seems a bit more grande and feels almost protective to me, hence the title. See what you think.

Also this one is as I shot it, compared with my last post, which I cropped on purpose.
