CommentI have trouble in dark rain forest situations. I processed this initially in DPP4 to produce a 16 bit TIFFand then in photoshop used ADP Pro v3 to selected the white highlights that looked artificial from flash and reduced the highlights. The rest of processing was following Ian Wilson's method of selection, noise reduction and sharpening.The eye was selected and desaturated and darkened. The catchlight was added. Do you think the use of a luminosity mask is useful?
