looks like a crow to me too, but then again any big black bird is a cro for me Wink

Definitely a crow! But I guess you know that by now. It's a tough subject given the strong lighting on such a dark bird. You should be able to bring out some detail in the darker areas using PS. Certainly your exposure was correct as with any more you'd have completely lost the tree bark. Shame about the broken branch sticking up in front of the crow but that's nit-picking I suppose.

Thanks for the comments, I did have a try in Photoshop, using curves but I'm not too good with that and it didn't seem to help, any tips?

Definitely a Crow but I think it might be a Jackdaw as it seems to have a grey head . Lovely light and composition . If it were mine I'd feel inclined to clone out the overhead branch . x Lovely work .

You were right - better viewed on a decent monitor. Nice tones. Gary

Another nice shot. Like others have said, pity about the distracting branch in the background at top left. Of, course, who am I to talk?

I like this a lot.
Great viewed large.
Reminds me of the Omen films.
