Well timed! That's a beautiful pose you've caught, with spot-on details! Really lovely!

I think 'digitally manipulated' is for more extreme measures... swapping wings, heads etc! We all do DM to a little degree. Your's is very well done, with no signs unless you're looking for it. Well worked!

Swapping wings is an idea. A Goshawk with Tawny Owl wings Smile

Thanks all. The square crop is to remove the post he was coming in to and also cos it didn't really add anything to the shot.

Hopefully Miles will like this one!

Thanks, won't be posting for a few days. Gotta do some work Sad

Off to the NBPC on Saturday, probably for the last time as my membership expires and I don't really feel like renewing. So many other places to try. It's been good and enjoyable, but time to move on. Meeting up with Val123, but if anyone else wants to pop along - weather permitting of course.

Thanks all - have also replied to your reply Ade Smile

Weather is looking OK at the moment Val, so indeed keeping fingers crossed, but it's making typing difficult!

I have one that is even more extreme than this, but I clipped the very top of the wing Sad( Might need some PS work to rescue it.

Thanks Karl, it's just cos I delete the rubbish periodically.

Time to post some different stuff me thinks! Still have lots of in-flight stuff, but I should give Miles a break from his jealousy streak.

I was flicking through the latest copy of Digital Camera and spotted your name.... so I came looking to see if the same pic was in your portfolio... (they printed it too small, I was hoping for a proper look!!) and looky here... I think its this one Smile

Congratulations on your HC - both from Pete and from DC mag! Smile

Thanks all.

Not visited this one for a while, but Mike as far as I can see only 110 unique visits, so 76 out of 110 I see as a pretty good hit-rate, and anyway not worth getting hung up about Grin
