Default Great Blue Heron part 1

Now that I've got some web space, I can post some shots! This one comes from a National Wildlife Reserve. I sliped out last Friday before work (a good day before a wet weekend in the North East!) and got lucky. Here is the first heron I bumped into:



Taken with a 10D, 100-400L @ 400mm. handheld, f5.6, 1/350 sec, 400ISO, some exposure comp, but I forget how much. Reduced in PS, played with levels and sharpening.

What do you all think? I'm very new to PS, so if I could have done something better please tell me!

That is a great shot. My initial thought about any Photoshop work was that it looked a bit washed out on my screen and could do with a little more saturation. But I am coming to learn that what you see on your screen in PS compared to what you see on the screen when you upload to the web are two entirely different things! I opened your pic in PS and it looked perfect, no need for any tweaking. I find myself having to constantly compensate for this difference which is kind of frustrating.

If anyone has any tips or ideas on this then please help.

Again Eric, nice photo!

Regards
Martin.
