It has a plastic look to it. Can't say much more than that as far as how to improve this shot.

How much PP did you do from the original shot?

Nice enough shot but the shiny feathers distract and the photo appears too dark on my monitor. I played with it a little and came up with this. hope you dont mind

It was my first attempt shooting birds. Not very happy about it. But that was the best one among the shots I did that morning. So I was playing with PP, eventually I successfully made it plastic :lol:

Could any one offer some tips of shooting birds? I think I need some advice before I try next time. I use Sigma 100-300 lens.

If you are able to, set your camera to F8 and 400 iSO.IF the birds move then it should not blur too much as long as you pan the camera, Try not to get them in really bright light as that can blow the white in the photo. I would recommend you ask Normcaror Eric S in the wildlife forums for advice. Keep shooting though, you can only get better if you keep practicing.

Oh, and editing is very much a learning curve, it takes time and patience.

Thanks aladyforty. Using higher ISO is a good tip, cos I had to control my breath to be able to stand still......at the end I not only had sore arms but also suffer from lack of oxygen:?

I didn't notice the wild life forum before, thanks for mentioning it.
