Blue Jay Way

_MG_7111

I caught this blue jay wandering around in my yard. The image was severely backlit since the bird was in the shadow of the tree.

I made basic adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw. In Photoshop I created a duplicated layer, then selected the background and foreground so I could reduce the highlights. I reversed the selection and used Levels to brighten up the bird. I added curves and selective color adjustment layers.
