Rodney, a nice shot of the butcher bird, but could use some work in pp to bring up the shadow/highlights so you can see the birds eye and detail better.

The bird is nice and sharp. Good job of hand held shooting mate!

Interesting that Lou thinks the picture is a bit dark - it looks fine on my monitor, showing quite a bit of detail both the eye and a lot of sharpness in the feathers. Not all monitors show the same thing, do they? Makes editing pictures for the internet all that much harder.

Excellent shot Rodney. It's fine on my monitor. I think Lou might have bumped his brightness button!
cheers
