American Robin at Inglewood
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The American Robins are out in force at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, and probably all other locations in Alberta that they frequent. In other words, spring is here for sure -- notwithstanding a snowfall or two that might occur, just when we think we're in the clear. I spotted this robin hunting for anything that moves on the shore of one of the small ponds at Inglewood. He took time to pose briefly on a log for me, then went about his business.|
In PP, I used CS4's Curves to try to even the light. Then I used Color Balance to make some additional corrections. I cropped the shot to bring out the details of the robin a little, and trim the busy BG. Then I used Noise Reduction to eliminate the ISO 800 noise. After reducing the image size to 800 pixels, I used Smart Sharpen a little. Finally, Vibrance brought out the robin's red breast a little more.

Nice shot, good clarity and DOF. The colour of robin's breast is standing out and gives a good contrast to overall composition.
