I was photographing a cormorant flying, and I thought he was being bothered by a small bird. But He was tangled up in fishing line and flying with a lead weight attached to him. I was hoping to edit this to use for conservation purposes. The fishing line itself can kind of be seen, but I had hoped to bring it out a bit more but everything I tried isn't working.

Can you edit this so that you can see the detail in the lead weight along with the fishing line?

I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

I cannot make it to any decent quality but I can see clearly the hook on the wing and the bits of the fishing line with the weight.

That's actually impressive. I blew it up and did not have the detail or see any line, so I made one up lol. Just did a 1 and at 29% white

It might not be the world's prettiest edit, but it is certainly impressive, and so clearly shows what Wendy needs it to show!

Thanks! I hadnít seen the hook, so that was helpful. I couldnít get the line clearer, but I got it to this point

Maybe try darkening the sky a bit now to make the line visible? Just a thought.

I can try and look at it tomorrow -- I've had some (too much) success rescuing flawed images ... how big do you need that square crop?

Well, it's a question how bad other things can be to see the line. Needs few more minutes too look better.

Good as I could get before it started to deteriorate.

You can see the hook and some of the tangles in the line, but that's it.

Wendy, if you have the full-resolution RAW file, I'd be glad to take a cut at editing to bring out as much detail as possible.

Took a shot. Might've overprocessed...
