It was 18 degrees Fahrenheit this morning and windy, it warmed up enough to have freezing rain and higher winds.  No shooting today so I dug out my book on PS by Martin Evening and played.  

 

This is the new Eagle at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.  It is just off of I-90 facing it, on a dirt road that goes part way around the Main Pool.  This drive gives you an opportunity to shoot the bird on the water and adjacent areas.  I make a lap around it everytime I drive by. 

 

This day it was overcast and gloomy but I wanted a picture.  Today I used some selection techniques and masking to allow me to enhance selected areas.

I got in a bit of a "discussion" with someone on another forum about PP.  He didn't think it was proper to do it.  To mean its part of the process and fun of photography.

Very nice looking statue!

How do they get the Eagle to pose like that?

I agree with you.  In addition, folks like Matthew Brady were making darkroom adjustments during the US Civil War.

 

That said, your top image looks more natural.  The bottom image looks like strong HDR.  Also, there seems to be a strong list to Port.  :)

Top was the before.  The lower one wasn't treated with HDR, but I did push some of the sliders maybe farther than needed.  I selected the eagle adjusted that, then adjusted the sky, adjusted that and then tweaked the background.
