It feels that we are being driven by foaming-at-the-mouth politicians at the moment.

Are you perhaps referring to Donald Duck? :)

Here's a Marabou Stork (I think).  Correct me if I have the wrong identification, please.

Here I would be using two Smart layers and one mask.

I made the mask with apply image then brushed out the areas I don't want affected.

I opened an image either as a smart object or converted it to one, then made a new layer via 'new smart object via copy', made a mask and 'apply image'. Then did a camera raw filter to the top smart object.

Obviously a bit more convoluted but it is entirely non destructive and you can keep playing with any and all adjustments with no IQ issues.

Hi PBD, still playing with the various ways of doing this, but good results up till now, compared to other methods.
Thanks for your help.
Cheers Brian

I like the this one - the way the colour compliment each other and the twig on the left adds a frame within a frame.
