Female Superb Fairy Wren

By Davesumner    
Another in the Superb Fairy Wren series, I will be uploading one of the colourful males soon but they are hard to get the colours right as they are quite blue. This female was taken in Churchill Park on the outskirts of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia (see the map).

Cropped in ACR and the eye brightened slightly using Viveza 2. The red was enhanced slightly and the background slightly desaturated in Photoshop. A small amount of cloning to remove odd branches then sharpened.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking.

An extremely impressive close up photograph, in which you have captured not only the glorious colour and details, but also this magnificent pose, kindly donated by this rather handsome looking Fairy Wren.
