No wondering the starling is giving me a dirty look, note the plastic waste products caught in the tree. another challenge for them, never mind the unseasonablely cold weather

Decent image but you have lost all feather detail on the breast. An adult Starling has a speckled brest as well as back. You could try the dodge tool to get a bit of detail back..

Thanks Paul

it was my big issue with the photo, the solid black breast. i have fiddled with the image a little since posting and unable to recover the breast although I am not familiar with dodge tool. i will experiment and see what happens.

You wont get any more detail from the chest Niall, as theres no detail there, - its mainly solid black. This is because the chest is in shade, and not lit. So, all you will achieve is increasing noise levels in that area. Its noting youve done wrong, its how the bird was lit, - you will have lots of opportunities to get these with light on the front, so keep at it.


Ive had a go at general brightening, - not much from the chest as I mentioned, and Ive cropped to place the Starling in a better composition.



Hope this helps,


Regards


Willie
