    In the original NEFs, the egret was almost the same color and brightness as the sky and almost disappeared. Against a blue or dark sky, the exposure would have been fine. Hello, Capture D-Lighting. One quick adjustment, and here is the result. These images really need borders, but PS is one the upgraded laptop that I'm gradually migrating too.

    Good shots Gordon. You did very well on a day with really horrible lighting.

    I thought you said that you didn't get any flight shots Gordon. You've been sandbagging us. :lol:

    Excellent captures, and processing to match. Well done.

    I think the hig key is beautiful..

    I would print it big and eliminate all the color in background.

    Got to get Dirks' Swan pics to show you.
