At last! A decent perched hummingbird photo! This dude however is rather temperamental, and only lets me get within 20 feet of him when it’s half an hour before sunset....so I have to practice low shutterspeed shots to compensate.

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.

I'm not a skilled Photoshop guy, but find that the the Elements Auto Smart Fix feature does a great job.  Appreciate the feedback - I'm having a ton of fun sharing pictures here. 🙂
