With his feet planted firmly in the running water this little chap waited patiently to provide a meal for the brood.

The original shot was blurred both back n front but I have added some blur in CS4 to give it more of a dreammy feel, what do you think ?

A wader experience for me. Smile

Low POV and the added blur combine to give the bird the appearance of being in a spotlight Alan. Excellent presentation.

love the detail in the bird but there is always oneWink that will disagree with the extra blur I might have cropped most of it out but as its showing water the bird was settled in then why blur the obvious - thats me being picky

Maybe a bit heavy with the blur tool? Looks like you were using a 1000mm lens.
