I was watching this Wren for about 30 mins taking a different path to its nest to feed its young, I tried to focus in one area to try and capture a picture of it and was very luckly to get this image. It was so fast and you just had no idea were it would turn up next. Quite a mouthfull also i think.

Little poppet, you have done well.
Lovely sharp, eye contact too.
I might have cloned out the little branch behind
the insect.

Excellent composition Bob with the wren characteristic upright tail, good clean background, this one could be great to learn to clone on, the bottom left branch and the right hand side branch could go to make it not to cluttered, always make sure you are working on a copy and not the original, Ctrl and J is the shortcut to bring up a copy layer in Photoshop. nice capture.

A stunning capture; one which was clearly worth the wait. The Wren is certainly a most endearing and somewhat flighty and tentative bird, so capturing one as good as this is a real buzz.

What a wonderful close up Bob - especially with all that delicious grub for his little ones!

Hi Trev, what a difference that makes, so much better thank you. I do have photoshop but dont use it much. You know the noise reduction programme would you buy the bolt on for photoshop or buy a seperate stand alone? I think I am going to have to look a little more at post editing some to help. I have photoshop elements 10 this seems quite complicated programme is their something easier?

Hi Bob have only used the full version of Photoshop so cannot give any advice on other programs, but like everything else the more you use something the easier it gets, I have the bolt on version of Imagenomic for Photoshop, two years ago I was like you I could just about open Photoshop, but watching online videos on Adobe websites and using the free disks from the magazine I still am no expert but get around it, keep trying mate and why not join a camera club, mine does several Photoshop nights through the year.

Regards

Trev.
