Wahoo!! Very impressive, Rocky! Lovely shots. The sense of "lift" is very evident in the spread of the wings and view from below in the 2nd shot. Cheers, Dan

GW, nice tweaks. Steve, I couldn't see yours. .

thanks, guys... i went back and did some tweaking of my own, only instead of increasing contrast, i used a function called "render>lighting effects>omni"... it doesn't really change the brightness of the subject, just makes it stand out a little more from the background... lemme know what you think!

Difficult lighting to handle. I wasn't going to post this after Rocky posted his revisions, but then decided to anyway, as it is interesting to see how the different techniques used in these various revised shots yield different results. I used the highlight/shadow tool in PSE6 on this one, but didn't have much luck with it on the first shot.

Not to belabor the point but I think I fixed the problem with my "eagle edits" post. Penolta brings up an interesting point about the different approaches to fixing a problem. I just wanted to add mine. It just vanity on my part.

All the edits look pretty good.

Cheers

it'd probably have been easier if you started with the original rather than one i'd already tweaked. your edit definitely brightens things up, but it looks a bit noisier, and doesn't seem quite as sharp...

nice shots there, I have the 100-400 nowadays and find it to be a very versatile lens
