Just Because...

By csurry  
Edgar is convinced I have been uploading all week and beating him to post each image.

He's too busy playing gerudo stalfos ambush on the wii. Grin

Lovely image Cheryl and your post processing is excellent. You must show Mr C. how it's done (how cryptic is that Grin)

Mr C is sorted - he decided to ignore the 100k limit and thus the system has resized them to around 48K. Shame no one thought to point it out to him though.

Edgar still trying desperately to beat his own high score - competitive or what? No one else gets a look in, so if Edgar's kids are looking in, he'd like a wii for his next birthday and the links crossbow training game Wink

Thanks all.

Ah Barrie, the other Mr C. I shall also point out the error of his ways when I see him later in the week.

Too many people with surnames beginning with C!

Edgar still playing - he's beaten a couple of scores on other games, but now back to the skeleton ambush.

That Mr C is behaving himself Lee, Barrie meant another Mr C.

Thanks all. Just been kneeling in snow doing backlit shots of small birds - knees now ache really badly Smile But hopefully the results will be worthwhile.

Thanks especially to Landlord, Peter_oak, AngelaBarnett and MikeSmith for their user awards.

Have a few more of these in different poses, but eyes are a bit tired from all the glare from the snow Grin

Finally I get snow when in Scotland for winter wildlife and so does the rest of the country, luckily not everywhere has red squirrels Grin

Thanks Sandra, 5 user awards is pretty impressive for me.

Noticed the mod by Barrie, not sure. I am working on the old laptop, so just applied standard processing in C1 V4. Generally it works for 99% of images, though may not always get the absolute best out of the RAW file, but I tend to take more time/do more if I am printing or sending to someone for publishing. For ePZ it's very simple.

Had another few inches of snow, and have taken even more squirrel shots. Now all alone in the cottage as the others have left. Which means I should have the squirrel hide to myself tomorrow, so hopefully they will be keen for some more food.

Off out for some small bird shots in a bit, tends to be warmer outside than actually in a hide sitting still.

Only to wind you up on your return home - but I never got around to texting you and after it got a PA the joke was kinda killed.

Thanks Tomcat, Steve_S and SueWB for even more user awards Grin
