That's a cracker Alan. So different than the flamingo we saw in the Camargue. Pam

That is a very small and precise eye. Crisp and clear. Seems about the size of a small seagull eye. TG

A lovely splash of pink and fine detail in the flamingoe's face. Is there any way to turn down the brightness of the flamingoe's back though as it looks a bit too bright.

Gordon the back and other bits of the original image are quite a bit over exposed (spot metering and a poor operator being the cause). I did play around with it but the detail has been lost and any further reduction of the brightness/highlights just leaves it a yucky grey colour. I did try different compositions but didn't like them so it is what it is. I suppose I could have tried High Key processing. I might give it a go.
