Rainbow Lorikeets may not be true native Western Australian Parrots but they are still beautiful birds, full of personality, and they’re here to stay.
This Rainbow Lorikeet was getting a bit agitated by some local Magpies so he got into some serious foot stamping & wing flourishing.
Proof that sometimes you just need to be in the right place at the right time
Although still a work in progress the above image is the result of several steps of post processing in Adobe Lightroom Classic, Topaz DeNoise AI, Topaz Sharpen AI, ON1 Photo RAW 2022 and Adobe Photoshop.
Below I will show the progress at various stages of my workflow so you can see how the image processing progresses.
This is the RAW image as produced by the camera (Canon EOS R5 + Sigma 150mm – 600mm) and exported from Lightroom with no changes made. As a general rule RAW images are slightly darker than required to allow for a good overall exposure and maintain the detail in the highlights.
Here I have processed the image solely in Adobe Lightroom Classic, which is always my first step for an initial pass of adjustments. In this case adjustments include the Basic tab controls (Colour Profile, Exposure, Highlights, Shadows, etc..) and some tweaks in the Tone Curve tab.
Finally, I finished the processing of the image in Adobe Photoshop, adding some colour balance, a slight Orton effect and making sure the saturation & levels look good.
Location: This image was taken at Rotary Park, Wanneroo, Western Australia.
