Stunning quality shot. Both skill of the photographer in capture and post process is clearly evident

I do quite like the rest of the shot but I can see what Michael means about the processing of the post ... very, well, woody Wink

Thanks all.

Not sure I understand the comment Paul. No post-processing on the post. Only PS is to remove the trailing jesse to the left of the birds body above the post.

If you are referring to the missing piece of post by the foot that is simply how it was as it is a very old and weathered post. Which is why we choose it.

Sorry Paul, been up since early. I read it first time and thought you were deliberately twisting Michael's words and then thought not sure...

Then I looked closely at the pic and thought I wonder if he means the missing bit at the back of the post? Never mind, time for room service!
