bath time

By CPO1944
Pippin & Morgan`s big bath. No great art here , it`s just a snap of a fun moment.
Look at Pippin the Caique having a good time surfing on the towel.

A lovely African grey. Mine used to talk his head off as long as he thought no one was watching.
You brought back fond memories.

Morgan is a female and she will talk your head off anytime. She is not the least bit shy.

She actually asks for things she wants ie:
wanna go outside
take a shower
want some chicken
strawberry etc.etc.

A cute shot. Toof me a while to find the second bird!

I think this would be better presented as a shot of the Grey, by cropping off the left. A little contrast, sharpening and a reduction in highlights brings out the best in the Grey.

The image looks a little overaturated to me, - just judging by the grass, so Ive done the tweaks in the mod and desaturated a little.

Your settings look good, and its seems your focal point was also the Grey, as the other bird is a little blurred. It rhymes, blurred bird...

Hope this helps,

Two lovely birds, Jack, and an image with a humerous side, with Pippin using the towel for drying off.
I couldn't find Pippin at first glance, which is a shame because I like that part of the image. I do, however, agree with Willie, and like his modification, just having Morgan in the frame, the star of the bathtime show. I think Pippin's antics deserved a separate picture, and obviously a closer shot.
The little bit of the red and white flag in the background is distracting. I think that if you had considered capturing Morgan on her own, you could have moved more to the left and achieved a cleaner background.

Thank you Pamela.
You are right about the shot, but these two creatures are NOT LOVE BIRDS , they hate each other and the bath was full of squabbling back and forth.
This was the first peaceful moment and I wanted to capture both of them.
Pippin is only about 1/4 th the size of Morgan but is a mean and feisty little booger and gives the poor more cautious Grey fits.
I will spend more time properly composing the next birdie episode .
