Before and After

before jpeggoshawk stareFriends, today I am processing more images for my book on Hawk Ridge, this image of a Northern Goshawk grabbed me but i didn’t have a solution for the problem of no space at the top of the bird’s head.  Arthur Morris to the rescue, on his blog Birdsasart, he just gave a video tutorial on adding space that was dynamite for me, you can see his video at: http://www.birdsasart-blog.com/2013/01/01/free-photoshop-tutorial-video-i-how-did-that/ .  Thanks Artie, In short I also used the detail extractor from Color Effex Pro 4 and used a layer mask to add the details only to the bird. the top image is right out of the camera (raw) and the second is after processing.  til Tomorrow MJ
