Another Stonechat

By leeg  
Another shot from yesterday. Lighting wasn't that great and nor are my PS skills. Cloned a distracting barch away from behind the tail - possibly still evident!! Aylesbeare Common in Devon. y obliging.

This hasn't compressed very well and may have to rejoin E2 again. Big is beautiful sometimes!!

Grateful of any comments made.

There's a few darker bits where you've done the cloning but nothing major, wouldn't of noticed it if you hadn't of mentioned it.

Cracking shot.

Slight evidence of the cloning (about 6 slightly darker marks) but as someone who also suffers a lack of PS skills I can appreciate the problem.

Other than than really nice composition and singing to boot.

Stunning detail Gra. May have underpriced that 2xtc :o) . Before reading your blurb I picked out the cloning artifacts - not sure what to advise but they are evident to a critical eye. The white collar has lost a bit of detail I think - compression perhaps, but that's being really picky. Like to see this full-size - love the singing action!

A wonderful capture of the bird singing, as they always are!! It would be great to see your birds in large version.
