When I took this photo (taken in Sydney Zoo) of this Peacock I framed out the dirty brick pavement and its feet. Little did I know about post production at that moment since I only started digital photography 3 weeks before.
The last few weeks I've already learnt a lot, looking around here at TE, getting some very useful tips and by playing with Photoshop Elements 5. Thanks for all the help so far. In this photo I added some saturation, added contrast and did some sharpening.
I'll keep on looking forward to all your critiques, workshops and other tips.

Wonderful shot, the framing is excellent, with no space around the peacock. The graphical effect is amazing. Colours are great as well.
