NHL,

That is really a great shot. I really like the way the BG has a lot of pastel coloring to it, and your tit is gorgeous and sharp.

Very nice colors, saturation, background and tack sharp. And even with the mottling of light, you nailed it. Please teach me how to get it all right in the same photo. Woody

Like the first one but the bg has sharpening noise. From what I know, using history brush one can remove it, but I haven't been successful in doing so. I need to learn PS more.

Would you believe luck???

I had the 120-300 f/2.8 on with the 2x teleconverter still attached for my far herons shoot when this guy landed close by. My only problem was how to crank the zoom down fast enough before he flew away! :-)
-> A catchlight from a flash on the eye would have been more lively but in this case I have no time for that.
I generally shoot @ -1EV to -1/2EV for dark birds (such as the herons...)

The eraser tool outside the subject should restore the original background image
-> you can do it relatively quickly if the adjustment layers are still preserved - but in posted images the 'noise' can become quite an effective tool in 'copyright'... :lol: :-) :-)
