Here's my belated take on this one, I had a quick look yesterday, but my time was spoken for. ...

Changed the background, cropped for composition,and raised contrast in LAB colour + some selective sharpening. ... Jack.

here's mine. basically auto levels, some burning in, and a contrast adjustment with USM at 20,60,0 in PS..

harriet and tim seem to where i go..
jack, loved the background replacement!!

i've seen some posts that say the original was a great shot. i see it as a severely under exposed shot on my calibrated monitor. that's why i posted it. it's got a lot of potential tho..

Thanks, just had nothing to do

CS3 - Just added pro contrast (nik color effex 3.0),
then changed the lightness of the tree a bit.
Added some extra headspace, cloned the background a bit.
Then a bit of noise ninja, cropped it and ...

Ended up very close to kazuya's version

I finally got around to messing with the photo, which I didn't think was too bad to start with. I just brightened it up a bit, did a bit of sharpening (hard to do on a already sharpened image from the camera) and worked with curves a bit and this is what I came up with.



Or this although I like the Macaw a bit less intense than this one.

This is a bit different. Not sure I like it as much as some of the others, but I thought I would give it a whirl.

Hi Roy
nice idea

first one: Cropped (rule of thirds), Levels, unsharp mask (really nothing special, that's what happens to all my pics) -all done with gimp.


bye alex
