Being an IT consultant means that when not bluffing ona client site I get the chance to "work from home". Which in turn means I get to hear or see the Red Kites as they circle over the garden. Obviously in the few seconds it takes to pick up my GX-10 they b*ggers have flown off so I was pretty pleased that today I managed to grab the following











The first 2 are 100% whereas the 3rd (which was actually taken earlier) has been resized. And no tags this time.

Thanks Roy

As for PP, they have all had some. Mainly a bit of sharpening and I warmed up the white balance a bit on the 3rd to bring out a bit more colour on the body. If there is anything else you can suggest, I'm always willing to listen. Especially when it's on something I know very little about (PP always seemed like cheating! It's only now that I am beginning to see that it's quite the opposite).

These are much better than any of the (few) red-tailed hawks I've managed to get - well done!

ansel adams would definately disagree.. he was the master at it along with W. Eugene Smith.. i'm sure there are others.. just a levels/curves adj. will do wonders..

Beautiful shots. I have often thought PP was cheating. However, what we are looking for is a picture and just like a painting artist will take liberties with his canvas, I think we should be able todo the same with ours. The only exception would be ifwe weretrying to prove something was the way it was and it really wasn't the way it was, such as the news photographer who added smoke to his shot of Bagdad to make things look more impressive than they really were.
