Woodpecker PP Challenge
Lens: Sigma 120-400 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Qc, Canada 

OK, this one is a photo of a quite rare woodpecker in our area... I did not had many chances to shoot it, I got maybe 5-6 shots, and this is the only one I got where it is not behind the bushes...
however, this one needed quit a lot of PP to "rescue" it...


can you identify what I did in PP in Lr5?

Is there a different background? Edges of bird and tree are too sharp.

there is a "stripe through the bird where a branch or something was cloned out haha.

but i have yet to get a good woodpecker shot. the fact that they are always near the tree trunk makes them difficult

Good job, no it wasnt a clone, but rather a branch shadow, but when am looking at it thru my ipad, it's more obvious than on my laptop... i did some pp on that area , maybe a bit too much, maybe i should have my monitor calibrated....

To be honest there is too much movement on the head, so the critical area is blurred. It's just one of those things, it happens. You have an image that is decent at small sizes but won't stand up to scrutiny at large sizes. You'd be better off going for iso800 and double your shutter speed. It's rare but persevere and there'll be a next time.

Good job, did you edit out a twig across its body?

Didn't spot it until you mentioned it but I do see that one lighter line over the middle of the body.

Very nice shot. Forgive my ignorance... what does PP stand for? It is not on the cheat sheet.
