Crapped the wrong image. This is the completed one where I softened the contrast a bit. JIM

I can barely tell a difference, but I think I prefer the original. It all depends on your monitor, anyway...

I agree the differences are suttle Adam and the monitor does change the look. Need to calibrate mine soon again. JIM

Very nice image Jim but I'm with Adam and prefer the first one. Thanks for posting it but a couple more wouldn't hurt.

OK - I'm officially giving up trying to shoot herons.

I'm just going to look at your shots instead.

Nice work Jim.

Interesting Georg. All I did was back of the contrast a bit and cleaned up his neck feathers. Cheers JIM

Really!

That would be great Jim. As you can see the wild ones only play peekaboo with me. A classic example from this morning.



Typically, there a lot of bush between myself and the bird. As you know I specialize in camoflage heron shots.
