Not highly modified. Editing done in PSE2, with no cropping. I don't like the lighting, but I like the shape added by the shadows. I hope some of the voters like it, too, but I doubt I'll be that lucky.

Overexposed in camera to correct for "white/gray" problem. Shot under a mixed fluorescent / tungsten light. Not the best but all I had at the moment with a sick kid to put to bed.

Convert from RAW, after a DPP exposure adjustment of +.083 and a click white balance adjustment. Sharpness set at 8.

PSE2, I created a duplicate layer, Gaussian blurred and masked out the center. This was intended for noise, but I don't think it was necessary. Added a curves layer, then USMed 300, .3, 0, and then another USM of some radical setting for contrast.

Resized and sharpened, then saved for web.

Nice feathers. It would have been nice if the background was fully white.

pity about the two dark patches at the top corners as this is a lovely photo and good focus

Other than a wreath of feathers, I'm not sure what this is or why I should be interested in it.

I would have liked this better if the whole of the background had been white.
