That's a nice reflectionyou've captured, mate! You must havefertile environment for such stuff in Florida : )

Well, I simply selected the bird for some highlight adjustment and sharpening and then selected inverse to apply some levels and exposure adjustment on the water (imo, white looks even nicer on somewhat stronger blue). Finished up in Neat image to clean up some by products and reduce the file size :-)

I'm still new at this and learning every day.

I don't have any editing software to clean up images at this point, or even any real know how to do it.

I like your version. It's brighter and more inviting. However, the actual colors and scene that I took a picture of looked more like my original version.

I prefer the original much better than the edit. The edit is way too unnatural looking to me. It just needs some contrast. I cropped it a little tighter for use on the forum here, but the original crop works fine for me. I also added a tad more warmth by increasing the yellow channel a tad.

I love it! I've definitely got to learn how to do that.

(There's so much to learn.)

OK, here's my attempt. To my mind the main subject is the Ibis... so I concentrated on the bird with my edit. The image itself is a tad darker, but I think it doesn't really hurt that much. Did histogram, minor curves adjustment, detail works. Hope you like it - have fun.

Regards,
Th.

I like it a lot.

What software did you use? I ask that because I've been shopping around and noticed that there are different Photoshop's -- Adobe and and Corel for starters.

How do I know which "photoshop" to get?
