Took this one last summer at Warwick Castle. Canon 400D and EF-S 55-250 IS
Its a bit muted like the other, doesn't have the darks I wanted. Also I didnt like the composition as it was too similer to another I had, so as i missed the square crop, I tried that, seemed quite appealing to me. Took some empty space out of the top, filled the frame entirely.
This is the result
As you can see, the features are cool, teh background is cool, but the beak still overpowers the images too much, and the eye is too far gone. So I went to Lightrooms amazing non-destructive adjustmeant brush. To change the beak, and bring out the eye.
