    Very nice Rathika! Always very envious of anyone getting these beautiful raptor shots! I noticed that for my tastes, the raptor shots could use a tad more sharpening, (which I did in PS to test). Are you doing a final shaarpening on them after reducing for web?

    Just to be sure of what I said, I meant to ask if you sharpened them before saving for web, not after as you mentioned.

    ...shots, rathika. curious, where you shot these?
  8. Rathika, your Kite shots are very nice! We have some Kites around here but I seldom get to see them! Love the Pelican, too! Those, we have tons of, but I still like to watch and photograph them. Like flying dinosaurs!!
