Image of a Gyr Falcon from a recent event.

Yesterday's image Night Ballet was seen to contain a couple of faults neither of which I could see so I shall take a rest from presenting flowers against a black b/g as I could not guarantee that these faults would not be repeated.
Some members screens must work differently to my own, or my eyesight is worse than I thought.
Not being able to see the faults even after re-importing the image into PS and tinkering with contrast, shadows, etc. means that I would probably repeat them.
Ar any rate, no more such KS images.

However I must thank all for their contributions, and esp. Annette {annettep38} and Graham {digital-boi} for their User Awards.

Ronnie.

Top class, Ronnie, a superb image. As for yesterday's upload, I couldn't see any 'artefacts', neither in V.1 or V.2, but my eyesight certainly isn't as good as it used to be Smile. I only work on a 14" screen, not as lucky as some to have 28" screens Sad Carol

I wouldn't worry about the faults Ronnie, if they are there and I spot them I'll tell you mate, it wasn't bad, just noticeable on my fancy monitor. Most folk didn't notice it all from what I can tell and I certainly hope you didn't take offence from me pointing it out Sad I just know what a perfectionist you are Wink

Have to say I much prefer this though mate, but you know what a bugger I am for all things alive with wings Tongue Lovely portrait of this fabbo bird....

Fantastic falcon image Ronnie taken at a good angle.
Looked back at image which has caused 'problem'.
Needless to say I can't see a thing amiss - I have a new 17"monitor.
I don't doubt with these super screens which others have, things may show up
not seen by ourselves.So please don't beat yourself up over ONE image!
I've told my daughter to look out for your flower images so you can't let your public down!

Hi Ronnie excellent capture here great detail and catchlight in the eye.

Having looked at the full sized shot of yesterdays Gladdie my feeling is that on upload some noise was introduced because its not on the original image sent to me so mefinks the KS must continue WinkWink
