stunning detail, but that tiny bit in the bottom left of the shot, takes my eye of the shot as a hole... but other than that, great shot!!

Hi Judy,

I remember your nice bull shot, - looks like your interested in wildlife shots.

Theres a couple of tweaks that can benefit this shot quite a bit, as you can see from the mod.

First, its not sharp, - I bet your original is quite sharp though, - this is becasue you need to sharpen after you re size your image for loading on the site.

Second is exposure, 0 its quite dark, and you can use curves in Photoshop to brighten the eyes in particular.

The I would suggest a crop, - taking some off the left and bottom to make the most of the birds pose and expression.

In the mod, I have added a vignette which you might like.


Hope you find this helpful,

Regards


Willie

You have a good clean background and a nice closeup with detail on the head, and Willie's mod shows what can be done to enhance this even more. The eye is a very important element in an image like this. Very nice.
I have done a mod using Willie's picture, and taking out some of the blue.
