This is a really fine shot Coen, that just needs a little post processing work to make it "pop" as it deserves.


Youve done very well to capture this is such a mix of dark and very bright. You have correctly exposed for highlights at the expense of shadows, and those shadows can be retrieved, as they contain a lot of detail.


Ive concentrated mainly on the shadows in the mod; Ive brightened that gorgeous eye; sharpened maily the head, - it may have been slightly rotated away from you; reduced the background brightness; I found through the process that there was a very slight blue tone to the shot which is corrected; Ive cropped using the A4 format to place the bird a little further to the right.


I hope this is helpful. I also loaded a flipped mod, - sometimes shots like this can look better to some viewers when seen or "read" left to right.


very well done,



Regards



Willie

Willie covers it. You have exposed, correctly, for highlights, but then not corrected the shadows. You need to do some work with the dodge tool to put that detail back.
