I don’t think you “over manipulated” your photos. Personally I think that when editing pictures it should always be in a way that enhances (contrast,sharpening,cropping) because sometimes the camera just can’t get the beauty of let’s say flowers.
I totally get that manipulating is very fun but I try to stick to how GOD made it.
Hope this is helpful.September 25, 2017 at 3:11 pm #25896
Good point, @elianafranzenburg! When something looks “off” or disproportionate or just “not right”, then it’s a telltale sign that the manipulation wasn’t done in such a way that was consistent with how God made the world. The finches, for example, that @bensharpeningcharacter noted screamed to him CGI. 🙂October 31, 2017 at 7:33 am #26587

Very pretty photo! But I think it does look a little artificial. If you do want to replace backgrounds leave a little bit of texture like a few branches.
Personally I like photos better when theres a subject and also like a blurred backgrounds. That’s just my point of view.November 1, 2017 at 6:13 am #26609
I love the photo! Although I agree with Eliana that your background replacement looks a little artificial and needs more texture. As it is it gives the appearance of the bird being “cut and pasted” onto a white background. Especially around the top part of the bird. But to address your question specifically, I do not think that replacing a background is a bad or wrong thing to do. Especially in a case like this where the background is blurred anyway.November 2, 2017 at 3:12 pm #26708
