Here at the Copán Ruinas,in the Copán River Valley, where the remains of the majestic temples and palaces of the ancient Maya metropolis (B.C.)
are stored and declared as National Monument in 1982, i looked at this beautiful bird: Ara which was posing for me and awaiting to be captured! i took my chance and captured this beautiful bird on my camera!

Sharpness and noise removal

Hi, Patrice.

This is what I did:

1) Sharpness through Intellisharpen II, a PhotoShop plug-in;

2) Blur Tool on the background, to remove some noise;

3) Near the head of the bird, on the left, Clone Stamp Tool, in order to clone out that whitish spot.

I do hope you like it.

Best regards.

Lívio
