Just great! I love the way he found the highest part of the curve of the branch! What a regal bird -

Nice series , Houston, I love raptors, and these shots show off the "regal" attitude of the birds as noted by MsPuck.I have included an edit of the one shot, purely to "highlight" an action for PS [not sure if it works for Elements, it probably does]. The action is called "paint with light" and is found here : http://www.atncentral.com/

My son said to me after editting a shot of mine : "Is that what was really there, is that what it looked like?" and after thinking about it for a while, I realised that, no, it wasn't how it was, in real life, it was actually better, a camera can't capture the colors and shades that we see in real life, so what we do with edittingis try and get the shot to look as close to the "real thing". Anyway Houston, I have applied this action to your shot, the best shot of them all in my opinion, although the original was a bit dull, and I think it brings out the birdquite nicely. Tell me what you think .:-)

Brilliant. I always wonder how people get so close. Would you mind telling what lens/camera you were using?
