Good solid shot, you have the detail and a good profile, if interested you can even get more from this shot. I put the steps below for you to try. Spot on! Click!!!


1. Increase highlights by 50%
2. Sharpen 1 pixel deep, 50%
3. Decrease saturation - 14
4. Set input levels to 0 0.71 255
5. Select the bridge of the beak were it is all white, go to photo filter, uncheck luminosity, then select sepia, 25% and apply.
6. Increase contrast +10

These steps will work in Photo Elements 3.0 of CS 1 or 2. Will give you a whole new look, one that I think you will find interesting.

Terrific capture - the sharpness of the subject against the strongly blurred background gives an almost 3-D effect.

Great shot, well done. Made a copy of Greg's tips. My expertise with PS is a tweak of the contrast and a slight sharpen.
