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.

Excellent image - well taken
Very successful too, it does look like an end shot, great light and love the bright tones.know what you mean I sat in a bird hide for ages the birds were too far awy , none came near, wish I had thought of this
Stunning landscape shot, very well seeing & captured.
What a brilliant shot and very well executed.
On the thumb I thought it WAS a picture house capture ( for whatever reason ) a grand image well captured the PP is perfect and adds to the wonderful tone of it all, an excellent addition to your PF thanks for sharing Colin
Well it gave you a super shot of the view even if you didn't get any birds
Best shot I've seen from a hide, by several miles. Who needs feathers?
I had a 'frank exchange of opinions' a while back with a site member who opened his attack with 'I build my own hide and sit in it for five hours, that's real photography.' It put me off birds for life. Sorry, maybe I should rephrase that.
Thanks all for you lovely comments - very much appreciated (the birders down at Westhay are quite strange I have to say - god I hope there aren't any listening!!).
what a good idea and great execution,lesley
top notch stuff this is my fav shot of the day by far, great work
top work Team
A really good shot, well captured.
Good shot and well presented too.
And thanks for your additional info on my image !!
An interesting shot and given the wide aperture, I'm amazed at how sharp the image is from f/g to b/g. I like whatever you've done to the original very much. Well done.
Great looking shot.
An interesting image, agree about the end credits look. Not thought about doing this myself despite spending lots of time in them!
Nice framing idea. Works well. Paul
cool effect. Love the picture too.
This is a stunning image..... Absolutely beautiful.
