Challenge: Free Study 2008-03 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
Location: Grantchester, UK
Date: Mar 13, 2008
Aperture: f/4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/320 sec
Date Uploaded: Mar 25, 2008

Post Processing: I did slight adjustments to white balance and exposure in RAW processing and added saturation and vibrancy. Then I increased the contrast using Curves and created 2 vignettes around the bird, one larger and one smaller. Then I increased the saturation of just the birds slightly. Resize, USM, Save for web.

Nice detail on this. Busy branches like this are hard to get looking right. When I do such a scene, they just look cluttered. The birds stand out nicely, and the whole thing just works together for me.

Weird , I have the feeling that when I look at the image, the pair seems to be selectively touched up & it shows. If I am right, then the post processing needs some more work
