Just a quick Workshop to check that everything's working, and because I could ;)

Selected the background using Select/ColorRange, NewLayerViaCopy. Then Select/LoadSelection (tick Invert) to grab the heron. NewLayerViaCopy.

Moved the heron layer to the top and converted to LABcolor and applied USM to the Brightness channel (10%, 20px, 0)(40%, 1.2px, 0)(20%, 0.8px, 0) to enhance detail without increasing colour noise.

Finally I selected the background only layer and ran Blur/Gaussian at 9px to smooth out the noise.

I hope you like it :)

Grabbed the branch on the right using rectangular Lasso, and then used Edit/Transform/Skew until it was pulled straight - to make a nice frame for the image.

Used Levels to increase punch whilst maintaining shadow and highlight detail - moved the midpoint up to 0.90.

Finally cropped to add a little more balance to the scene.

I hope you like it :)

This is my first ever WS try! I cropped your image outside the image area. You do this by cropping the whole image, than drag the sides out to the size you want.
Use clone stamp to fill in blue Bg that was fromed.
Run levels and adjusted white, then Hue /saturation, then reduced to 700 wide, USM, and faded USM, changed to soft light too. Now he has some breathing space and he is also more white. Please let me know if you like it.

Scaled to 300 pixels, Cropping, USM 200-2-1, a gentle NeatImage to remove a little noise and saving/optimizing for web.

Hope you like it
