Hi, I think it's too dark. I'd suggest increasing the overall exposure while at the same time pulling down the highlights. If you don't pull down the highlights they will be blown out. It's also reallly green but that may be an accurate reflection of the scene. Lastly, I would have cropped it a little differently. The bird is too high and to the right for my taste. Below is an example after I made some adjustments to the exposure. Best regards, John
Muchas gracias, tomare en cuenta sus sugerencias para corregir la foto.
There's chromatic noise under the bird.
I think you went in a little too close on the subject or you could have up you f-stop a stop or two more. Some edge are a bit soft.
There seem to be a slight motion blur at the head of the subject.
Agradezco su amable respuesta! Intentare hacer los ajustes sugeridos a la imagen.
Your photo has to little blacks and whites. It is mostly midtones which make it look flat. It needs to be lightened up a little. The highlights on the birds back are overexposed. Also, the photo needs to be sharpened.
Yep, the image is too dark as @John PDX has pointed out, so you have to lighten it a bit more.
See the histogram:
Notice how it shows the image is more on the dark side. In this case, you need to balance out the histogram more. You also need a bit more contrast, so increase the whites and blacks a bit.
Another thing is you have to balance out the white balance. It is a bit too green - so try to reduce the greenness. As the water is green, it has given a green cast to the image; the bird's feathers have taken on a green cast.
Be careful though not to lighten the bird's feathers too much to avoid overexposure.
When you correct the exposure, you will get colour noise. That needs to be corrected. Add some structure (Texture, Clarity) and a light sharpening, and you can consider a resubmit. If you work with RAW, that should be an easy workflow.
