I like the bird in the revised selection, you managed to recover quite a bit of detail. What about pasting that bird on the blue water of the first one? Or doing layers and layer masks, to show what you want from each picture?

Thank you Harriet. Yes, I thought about that too, I don't care for the muddy blue on this one but, I just haven't taken the time to do it. My computer is pretty slow with only 1gb ram so I'm not doing a whole lot of PP. If I ever get any kind of reimbursement from my insurance company on my burglary claim... (still waiting) I'll take that and my tax return check, I plan on building a super computer to handle my processing needs.

They don't look blown out on my laptop. You did great considering a white subject that's moving with water reflections to deal with, too.

I have to give you a lot of credit GW I have been trying to shoot those snowy egrets and have blown most of my shots on sunny days. I had better luck in the rain. This guy was strutting for his girl
