(1) Canon Raw converter with White balance around 5200k (not sure)
(2) Photoshop - Curves tool - manually apply S-curve
(3) Photoshop - unsharp mask 100% 0.4
(4) Photoshop - saturation + 10 (the purists will be after me for this )
thats it. if i was printing, then i would use neatimage to reduce the noise. For web-sized image, neatimage is optional.
The image looks like it was noise reduced .... or processed ....... the feather looks too smooth. i wonder how is a person able to tell a 'clean' image from a web size picture??? Will not the change in size reduce noise too?
