[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cuyahoga Valley National Park - The male Northern Cardinal is perhaps responsible for getting more people to open up a field guide than any other bird. Theyíre a perfect combination of familiarity, conspicuousness, and style: a shade of red you canít take your eyes off. Even the brown females sport a sharp crest and warm red accents. Cardinals donít migrate and they donít molt into a dull plumage, so theyíre still breathtaking in winterís snowy backyards. In summer, their sweet whistles are one of the first sounds of the morning.

Welcome to Treknature Kris! An easily adjustable image by clicking few buttons in Photoshop, indeed. The lack of brightness and contrast in the original is obvious. Lovely pose of the bird and accurate focusing! Please see the suggested alternative in the workshop! Have a great week Kris!
