I had taken a bunch of shots of this bird back in September and never processed any of them. So, i decide to practice my editing skills using adjustment layers and masks. In this shot the original background was just dull light gray as it was over cast and the sky was overexposed. So, i decided to make the sky blue. I wish I had cloned the 2 branches that make the bird look like it has 4 legs. I didn't see it until a few minutes ago. I also was going to crop most of the frame for a more close up view but, actually like this better. The sky is a bit unnatural and the bird stands out a bit too sharp at the edges but, it was pretty much the same in the original shot. Coloring the sky jst enhaced it. this shot shows i have a lot more to learn on editing images.

Pretty nice detail on the Cormorant, Dennis. I don't really think those little limbs distract from the bird.
