A gorgeous Peacock.

I may have just lifted the shadows slightly, but that's a minor point and probably just me! Grin

It depends on your post processing programme.

With me, I use Photoshop Elements 9 (there are free programmes you can download from the internet - Gimp being one). I would go to 'Edit' > 'Quick' and tweak the 'Lighting' sliders (Shadows/Midtones/Highlights). 'Shadows' up to 50, and just a small adjustment to 'Midtones & Highlights'. All ajustments are minor, but it really brings up the gorgeous colours and details caught! Smile

As you are an e2 member, you are allowed to click the 'Modifications Allowed' button, when uploading your image. Folk could take your image, use their post processing programme and upload the 'Mod' (hopefully explaining all the adjustments they have made). This can show you the (hopefully) improved version.
