It's a beauty Ed, although on my screen its a little pale - I might darken it a little and add a touch of contrast. Sorry I haven't been able to keep up with your work for a while but glad to see your work is still tops. A

Lovely bird but the image seems over exposed to me. If it were mine (I wish) I would work on it to overcome this and probably crop it differently too. In fact i did. You haven't enabled mods so I can't post my version but if you want to see it, just message me and we will fix something.

Nice shot. It appears overexposed, but its not really.

The yellow and green channels are oversaturated, and the mod I uploaded has this aspect ONLY addressed. You can see it looks as if exposure has been reduced.

Still a bit bright for some, but nice.


regards


Willie

Nice shot Ed.
Agree with the comments above, re exposure, always difficult in bright harsh sunlight.
