Photographer's Note

The national symbol of Uganda.

I made some small changes which I think resulted in a dramatic improvement in the image.

First of all I applied a unsharp mask of 20%, 60, 0 to clear up the overall haze and to "blacken the blacks".

Then I cheated a bit by creating another layer and rendering a directional light to brighten the birds face.

Let me know what you think of the improved version.

Here's a more whimsical photo of the same bird:
Crested Crane

And... I think this one is technically the best photo that I've ever taken.
Monkey in a cage
