Great bird , one that we do not see a lot of. Question, what did you do or what happened to the background? It looks as if the picture was over enlarged or to much contract applied. This is seen both on my 15.4 laptop and 23" monitor.

You are quite right marcb, it is very over enlarged. I didn't want to do that but I had the wrong lens with me when I took the photo and the bird is too small on the original. Gutted I never had my 400mm lens with me at the time!!

Could to reduce the enlargement by 1/2 and still get the essence of the bird and not loose the detail? One thing I use is a 1.4x and 2x teleconverters by Tamron and Canon (only) and they help with not having my long lenses with me without having to lose the shot. Hope this helps,

Thanks for the advice, I will try a 1/2 size enlargement and see how that looks! Smile

Nice work on picture 2. That on is more than likely the best. You've got my vote.
