    Hi All!!!

    I'm still trying to learn this Post Processing stuff and would like some input if you don't mind and have the time...

    I have posted the original file right from the camera in jpg and then my PP of the file. I used layers to sharpen and adjust the lighting. I adjusted the color before making the background copies to work with.

    Thanks much...

    original.

    Bruce,

    I don't think that you did too badly on your PP on this. I would add a little contrast, and maybe boost the saturation a bit. I would also probably do a tad less cropping on one or two of these, but overall, you are pretty close.
     
  3. so the first bird of each is original and the second the processed one?

    Thanks Frank, would I make these two changes to the original layer or duplicate and blend them in?

    Yes that is correct.
