My son's Weero, Charlie, sitting on my wife's herb mortar, in front of our linen cupboard, lit with 2 desk lamps. In other words, one of my usual professional studio set ups!

Couldn't get the white balance quite right due the mixture of different light sources, so quite a lot of adjustments to levels, brightness and contrast to get the effect I was after. Small amount of cloning of shadows, resized, added border and USM.

Beautiful exposure. May have liked to see a still more exposed background.

Like the attitude! I think the background is a bit muddy...but only in contrast with the white border...how could that be different?

Ahhh, sweet image of your female cockatiel. I have a male named Paulo. They make great pets. You get a 9 from me!!! Yeah, I'm biased, but your photo is nice, too.
