Ilene,

How important is the integrity of the background? If you're inclined to modify the background slightly might I suggest slightly desaturating the background? You could use various tools to maintain the color integrity of the foreground, the Heron. (Such as using masks or the History brush tool.)

Powisset Farm, Dover, MA. Don't think I ever posted this shot. I used it in a review I wrote about Perfect Photo Suite 8. I removed fencing and HDRed a tad. (http://www.tuaw.com/2014/01/28/onone-perfect-photo-suite-8-review/). #farmfriday    +Ellie Kennard   +Steven Kennard

Finally got my Mom's Memorial video up on YouTube. The first try was too long, so I had to edit it down a bit. Mom died on May 17th at 91 yrs of age. A nice long life, but the last 3 months were horrible. The facility she was in  shouldn't be allowed to have assisted living there, as they didn't take good care of her. Please enjoy this slice of her life though - I think she did!  
This slideshow was created with FotoMagico, although the 4 video bits were edited in other programs first.
