DBB---maybe it's more a LACK of processing, just a little contrast adjustment,crop and resize. I have got to stop using my laptop as I get the same effect as looking at the LCD----depends on the angle as to how it appears to me. Also, I don't have PS butlooks likethat or something similiar is a must have to make pics presentable. (Mine anyway..lol) Digital is still new to me.
Dynamohum------ you forgot the one with the fish....just kidding. Thanks for cleaning those up.
bobbyz---- I was probably30 ft. from the heron. The one with the fish in it's bill was probably 75-100 ft. Had some overcast that day with sun peeking through at times.
