As part of a project I took on for the International Bird Rescue team, I did a special Photoshop edit of the photo below. As you can see, the original is kind of muddy. The lack of color in the foreground of the picture and the busy detail of the ship in the background cause the two grounds to compete. To relieve this competition I took the color out of the background and toned down the intensity of the ship’s lights shining through the fog. As you can see, this defines the bird more prominently as the main subject of the photo and makes the picture look more artistic and compelling.
