Thanks Jim. This ends up feeling a bit Asian in style to me, which I am really pleased with. One of the issue is the clutter vs environmental context and the framing by the leaves. How would you improve upon the current image?
As far as processing, LR to PS to LR to CEP Detail Extractor to LR. With a light touch and control points to mask the effect everywhere by the heron. BTW, the Detail Extractor effect is almost invisible, so most of the effect was LR. In LR several bumps on clarity, slightly, some initial sharpening and a later round to edge (masked) sharpening. Bit of curves in LR too.
