Before & After: Bald Eagle

1/1250 | f/6.3 | ISO 560 | 700 mm
Read on to see the before and the processing that got me to the after ...

  • In Camera Raw (Lightroom): Added a touch of warmth with the WB tool and used fill  light to bring back some of the details in the dark areas
  • Color corrected using the Curves adjustment layer
  • Used the dodge tool to bring back some detail from under the wing
  • Added canvas to all sides, and used Content Aware Scale to fill in the extra space
  • Cropped the image to taste
  • Resized for web (1200 px wide, 72 dpi)
  • Sharpened for web
That's it!
