An adult Black-crowned Night Heron resting in a Cypress Tree in Alligator Hollow.

Because this bird was in the shadows, the eye turned out to be dark looking.

So I used the Dodge Brush in Photoshop to lighten it and then I locally sharpened the eye to brighten it.

This trick doesn't always work. But it's worth a try if you have a nice picture but the eye lacks punch.
