I was playing around with the Post processing of these two shots. The first one only needed a little tweeking to bring out the correct colors and highlights. The second shot suffered from servere back/side lighting so I used it as an opportunity to hone my skills in PS Elements. I think it came out pretty well without suffering from too much over correction.
Anyway, I thought the shots were salvaging.
Cheers,
Steve

That's wierd VP. I didn't do anything different when I posted them. Wacky Roger could obviously view them. Well here, let me discribe them for you. Imagine two of the most fantastic shots of a Peregrine Falcon you have ever seen. Mine aren't quite that good.
:blah:
I hope others can see them.

If not you can view them here. They are the last two pictures in the gallery.

Thanks VP. I feel kind of quilty. I've been able to find 4 or 5 each of the last few times I have been out. I just don't think there were this many the last couple of years. OR.... Maybe I am getting better at IDing them. :O I suspect it's the later.

Great PS work on the second shot, Steve - that sunlight on his back and face looks good
