Lilac Breasted Roller

Spotted on a recent visit to Chester Zoo this beauty posed for several photographers. Very tame and sometimes too close for my lens. Minimal sharpening and saturation boost in Photoshop.

Lovely capture, superb detail caught! I did a quick MOD where i lifted shadows and increased contrast a small amount. I then used the sponge tool to saturate the Rollers plumage before using colour burn (about 5%) to bring out more detail. Hope you like it.

A good image. It just does need the bird itself brightening a little to show more detail in the shadows. Possibly a burst of flash fill when shooting at half power. If using a camera mounted gun, try putting a bit of tissue over the flash lens to soften the light. If you have time of course.
