Default wren in sunset light

I went out with my boss to shoot at a NWR. I'd heard a marsh wren a few times but only saw it when it flew by us at top speed. I saw where it landed and had enough time for 2 shots. Lucky for me my camera had reasonable setting 'cause I didn't have time to do anything but push the shutter. 1 second later it was gone.

The original was a little too soft, but I just loved how the setting sun hit it just so. The other picture didn't have it... lucky, I guess! My mom loves wrens, so I'm going to send her a copy too.



Canon 10D, 100-400L @ 400, 1/350, f5.6, ISO 400
Noise removed with Neat Image.
PS: crop, sharpen (too much?), contrast, reduced & save to web.

As always, tell me what you thing, and feel free to do a reedit yourself (and tell me how you did it!) The original is available on request, if you would like to try from there.

Eric, looks OK to me, doesn't appear to be oversharpened (not seeing halos along the edges) Some of these guys are so jumpy it brings a grown man to tears!!

I spent a lot of time playing with the sharpening, so I'm glad it came out.

Oh, don't get me started. This one is around people all day long (joggers, birders, photographers, dog walkers,....) and it still doesn't stand still if someone is around. I think it's in their blood.
