Well I had a go at sitting in a bird hide down at Westhay nature reserve - no birds and to be honest I seriously doubt I have the patience to be a birder.
This is a genuine shot through the bird watching slot o fthe hide (you can just see the shelf for resting your bins on (I am assured this is a perfectly legitimate thiing for birders to do).
taken at 1/180 sec on F6.7 and Iso 100 - night to day issues not handled brilliantly. Wanted to make the shot look a little like a THE END screen from the cinema because thats how I saw it.
Over-processed intentionally - as is my want - one day I will return to the idea of a light hand on the helm.
