Morning all. Again taken through Lillian's bedroom hide window Grin. Told Lillian I had just taken some shots of a Coal Tit through her window. Not possible as she doesn't get Coal Tits to her feeders, she informed me. Well here's the proof that she tells porkie pies GrinGrinGrinGrin. She now tells me that it hasn't come back since. That is because I smuggled it down, then took it back to Bonnie Scotland. A big crop and a messy bg, but I am useless at cloning. I do hope Mrs K is happy now! Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's shot.
Thought I would enable mods if anyone wants a play around on the messy bg.

Hi Moira,

A good capture. well done and well done to Carol for her work on your background. Moira, I've not touched the background bur I have made a few slight adjustments the main one possibly being the eye. If you have a dodge tool set it to around 5% on highlights and keep clicking the catch-lights in the eye until your happy, for a want of a better term, it put's life into them. See what you think.

Take care
Martin

Mhfore has done the mod I would have done, so that's a great contribution to my lazy Saturday. Well done for the shot and for the successful abduction!
