Another beautiful bird. I'm always interested in your processing notes, but I'm not unable to discern much difference from the original. On closer inspection I see some sharpening, a slight vignette. A very light touch with a good original, I guess.   Posted: 01/02/2020 16:21:42

Sanford, thanks. Sometimes I get carried away with PP, so this lightly done was a change.   Posted: 01/13/2020 09:16:03

Nice bokeh for the background and you've done everything right for wildlife photography. Perfection in my book!   Posted: 01/06/2020 09:47:54

A superb image Cyndy. A wonderful study of the bird, sharp in all the places it should be and great colors and details in the feathers. I've heard many times over here that if you can see where a photo has been processed, maybe that processing is not so great. The fact that we can't see the processing all that easily is a testament to your skills. Congratulations. You should be very proud of this one.   Posted: 01/11/2020 19:53:40

Beautiful photograph. It is so sharp, even at 421 mm, really nice. I especially like the green shadow behind the bird.   Posted: 01/13/2020 13:22:42

I like your images of birds Cyndy and this one is no exception. I'm impressed how you have achieved the sharpness at 420 mm. Well done.   Posted: 01/14/2020 04:39:42
