Thanks .. But I think yours is much better than mine .. I love how you got the rich colour of its beak and the overall image is much more crisp. It just needs a little bit of tweaking, contrast, brightness and levels to bring out the contrast. I took the liberty of downloading your image and doing a little bit of tweaking and it makes the image crisper and pop out.
Im not really sure how to show you .. if you want I can email it to you.
Do you use any software for post processing like photoshop ? Are you using Camera RAW ? most camera raw converters have very good tweaking capabilities.
Actually I didn't alter the image at all. I don't have photoshop...only paint to add my signature. I usually shoot in RAW but this image was only a jpeg cause I was just learning how to use my camera. I would like to see what you did with the photo though. I'll send you a note with my email. Thanks
