Both good looking birds. :-)

Ah. That's the only one that isn't a JPEG, straight out of the camera. She is 
in quite a bit of shade, and a bit small, 
even at 600 mm eq. So it's cropped and 'adjusted'.

This is one of the places where I can't imagine LR would do what I want, 
adjusting a sharply defined masked area quite 
separately from the rest of an image, then being able to feather the transition 
very precisely at the pixel level. Her 
body is one mask. Her face is barely visible in the original, and treated 
separately from her body in another mask.

Did you have a hint that the senorita was quite differently processed than the 
rest - before I pointed it out? If done 
as a roll-over, the adjusted one would look unnatural. Seen alone, I think it 
looks pretty natural - and the subject 
looks much nicer. :-P

I almost brought the shady side of her body down a bit more, but decided to 
pretend that there was a light colored sea 
of flowers or wall just off to the left and the lighting was a little less 
harsh. Or I had an assistant with a fill 
reflector. :-)

Glad to be of assistance. ;-) My usual shooting haunts give me fewer 
opportunities than Nathan, but I do what I can. A 
warm weekend at the botanic garden brings out more kinds of flowers than one 
might imagine. :-)
