Hi,

I found this little guy while looking for interesting birds in the woods. Any feedback would be appreciated. I would like to know how to selectively reduce the brightness on the left side. Taken with Canon 20D, 75-300 at 300mm, Cropped and resized. Taken in Tv at 1/30 iso 400 at f5.6.

I don't think you can get the sides to match because the left side is blown out too much. I cloned the right side over to the left and increased the shadows with Elements 3 to get the following result.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies. Yes, Alady, he did enjoy hide and seek. His/her brother/sister did as well. Unfortunately, the pictures of both of them with their noses stuck out of the tree are a touch out of focus and therefore not post worthy.:sad: I have enjoyed watching your posts over the last few months. I was fortunate enough to live in Brisbane for seven months when I was a kid and I very much like seeing Australian wildlife, brings back fond memories.

Thanks for the fix BMullen, it is an improvement for sure. I was curious how you raised such detail from the shadows? I am still learning post processing. Could you explain the procedure? Thanks in advance.

Thanks; Jon

I used the clone tool in Elements 3. It is a tool that allows you to basically cut and paste one part of picture to another part. I couldn't easily darken the left side with other methods becasue it was overexposed to the point of being white. Thanks for the nice comment about the green heron.
