This is one of my very early shots taken when I first bought my camera and still learning all the functions. The white feathers were over exposed so in PS I isolated this area with the lasso tool and in layers brought down brightness and slightly saturated the colour. I then sharpened a tad with "unsharpen" (wooo hooo, I'm learning at last)
It certainly isn't a perfect shot technically but I liked it anyway especially his expression - eyes closed - pure joy - aaaah what a life!!
This shot was taken in a pond in Harare, Zimbabwe towards sunset after a hot day.
