Home To Roost

By Stewy  
As the Sun went down, the birds started to settle in the tops of these trees on the west bank of the river Nene. A bit hard to spot on here but some are visble in the left hand trees.

I hope they enjoyed the view too.

Softened using the Orton technique.

Thanks for looking. You'll see the birds better if you go large.

Un-softened version now posted as comparison

Nice fiery effect Martyn, would be interesting to see the version without the softness, perhaps as a 'Variation'...
