Well, well, well - I learned something interesting with your first picture, Jim. On my monitor at home (Sony LCD 19")there was a definite band around it that looked like too much sharpening, while I didn't see anything like that at all with the second one. Would have posted something like that but thought I'd wait and take another look at the good monitor at work. At work (the better one, Dell 19" LCD)there's no sign of the over-sharpening ring around the first bird at all! Maybe I need to do something about my home monitor? Or is the Dell's adjustment not quite good enough and it isn't showing me things that are really there? Just another one of those interesting things with computers and things electronic.

By the way, even though I think your egret is quite sweet, I like the blue heron better (wonderful birds, they are).

I really like the non cropped version of the Egret, it would make a great print.

Thanks for your comments Harriet ! Does sound like one of the monitors needs to be adjusted. :-) Jim
Harriet after Royce's comment I did add a little blur to soften the picture so maybe you viewed it at work after I had corrected it. Jim

Nice shots Jim. Love that Blue Heron. I like the full frame version of the Egret too. Shows it in it's element. I thought the first showed some haloing too,, but could just be the result of such a high contrast........cheers........Don

Another vote for the uncropped version. The backgrpund adds a lot of interest to the photo, without taking away from the main subject. Seeing it uncropped gives the photo a better 'in the wild' feel, if that makes sense.
