What a lovely little bird, and so beautifully captured, Ina. The detail is spot-on and must be viewed large! Very nicely presented as always, too.

Hi Ina, this is a lovely shot but I hope you don't mind me making the following suggestions to improve the processing here.
By using 'shadows and highlights' you could lift the shadows on the lower chest with a setting of 20%, then set highlights to 20/22%. Go to saturation and apply +10, this will bring out the pinky color in the plumage and finally add a little more sharpening. I used 70% at a radius of 1.7 pixels. These settings reall make the image 'pop'. Everythings all there, just needs tweaking and I feel it's worth it as it's a little cracker,
Regards,
Geoff.
PS: just noticed it's up for mods so one coming over shortly Wink

Hi Again,
When adding sharpening, select just inside the outer edge of the bird and feather by 2 pixels otherwise you will get a slight halo as is in my mod, I sharpened the whole shot just to get the mod uploaded quickly Wink

Congratulations Ina on an excellent capture of this beautiful little bird, had a couple of brief opportunities yesterday to photograph them, got a few images but not as good as this, they are such a joy to observe.

You just have to love these birds, I uploaded one myself a couple of days ago, I just love them and you have captured this very well indeed they dont stick around long and it can be hard to get a good eye on one.
