|Yes, another hummingbird shot. They've really started "swarming" around Grandma's for the summer. We have 18 that I've counted, so probably at least 2 dozen.
This shot I liked for the unusual POV and the almost "peace dove" appearance.
PP included crop, clone brush to remove a couple of distractions on the background edges, levels/curves, desaturate, selective color, replace color, channel mixer, dodge/burn, add border, NI, resize, sharpen, save for Web.
WOW! I'm very pleased with this finish. And I can't believe I actually beat Larus in a Free Study! ROFLMAO... Sorry, I know it may seem petty and I really wanted to finish in the top 10, but I'll take this and grin for a week. =-)
