    On my computer it looks very washed out. I copied it into my image editor, and lowered the gamma, then it looked quite a bit better. The detail really came out. . .

    Just a suggestion.

    How do you lower the gamma in PS? Thanks.


    EDIT: According to the PS help, it should be under Image - Adjust - Gamma, but I'm not seeing it there.

    Updated, any better?

    I still couldn't figure out how to change the gamma, I just made two copies of the layer, made the top one 'multiply', and messed with the opacity.

    edit/adjustments/levels
    and
    edit/adjustments/brightness&contrast

    2 of the most useful photoshop tools imo (for predominantly photo stuff). nice job with the bird, but i liked the "dried-out-ness" that it used to have, it added something to the story

    Close, I think a mix of the original you posted and the one shown now would be perfect. Right now it's almost too much, but I still like it better than the original.

    **edit** actually if you could post the original again, i want to demonstrate what i was thinking. I use paint shop pro as well as photoshop, and PSP has a gamma correction setting that is far superior to brightness / contrast. It brightens / darkens based on original intensity rather than uniformly. I think you could get the same results using levels, but I'm not that good at that yet.
