Great Erget

By johnMathew  
Closeup of Great Erget
Did a small crop to get this.
Tried to get the Close up of the Erget as the look was different. The Image was not sharp enough, Not sure whether the problem of lens. Also, yellows were getting prominent. Light(Rising Sun) was from my back.

The egret looks sharp enough here, although it's a bit hard to tell very much at this size.
The prominent colour here, I find, is green; yellow, of course, being a costituent part thereof.
I've added a mod. in which I applied the auto-tone tool, then de-saturated just the yellow channel a little.
All done using CS6.

Hope this helps.


Edit. Looking at my mod., I think I should have perhaps applied a (very slight) 'S' curve as well.

Hi John, The Little Egrets eye is nice and sharp, however the whites of the feathers are over exposed and the Background seems to be suffering some noise. This could be from the crop although you say it was only a small crop and the ISO is not too high as to cause it. The crop IMHO does not suit the image.

That said its a really nice image and different from the norm.

I have uploaded a mod with the yellows toned down and the highlights darkened.
