Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts

I shoot now with a superzoom Nikon when I bird, because I want the crazy zoom reach. The quality is nowhere near the glass I used to bring along. On my trek to the beach yesterday, I finally got a picture with it that's not bad.

A peep!

Not sure if forum etiquette requires me to disclose that I used the Auto Smart Fix feature of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 to get the final product below.  I've included the original as the second picture.  If the program logic only corrected the lighting and contrast, I imagine the photo should still be pretty authentic.  Please let me know if the final color saturation gives the Turkey Vulture a phony photoshopped look:





IMO, no it doesn't. You're only altering for brightness or maybe contrast. If you made the head redder or greened up the foliage that would be different. As a decidedly non-professional photographer, some of my pictures don't look that great out of the camera so I too adjust the lighting via Elements. Besides, it's not like you're submitting it to some contest. Keep doing what you're doing.
