I continue to try to fine tune my PP. Here is a shot that I took last Thursday, processed two very slightly different ways. I would greatly appreciate your opinion as to which is better. Also, I would appreciate your thoughts as too why if you don't mind.

Frank, I don't see a lot of difference between these two great images. The first one seems to have slightly more detail in the birds' feathers and feet.

What did you do differently?

I'd also go with #1 - just prefer the slightly darker and greener grass in the background. But, on another shot or different circumstances I might prefer the #2 approach.

After staring at them for a bit they look alike. So much for my help :>))

Great shot. Both, either way.

First off, best of luck with fine-tuning your PP....... :wink:

Here are my 17 cents worth.

In #1, as others have noted, the detail in the bodies and feathers is a bit better, richer and more deatils I think.

In #2, I like the heads of the birds much better, the "lighter" treatment brings out the eye much better.

If it were me, I'd tried to find an "in-between". If not, because I like to see eyes, I would take #2.

In any case, I would not call either "yucky".
