    Atta way Buddy !!!
    I'm digging the KF shot (you still have to get one in flight :tongue: :biggrin:)

    Now that hawk shot is Outstanding, really great angle, clarity, color and got those talons extended, excellent work and timing :wink:
     
  5. Jeff did you do some cloning on the shot of the Red Tail? It is visible on my calibrated setup here at work...

    Nice job on both shots. How much cropping?
     
  6. Way to go Jeff!
    I can see the cloning as well and it actually seperates one of the talons. No biggie tho, I would love to have either of these shots in my stuff.

    no crop just removed a wire a pole and a bald eagle that was in the way .I need to clean it up better but my photo shop skills are --well really bad and I liked the shot so I did what I could .I find so far that with my d2h that I do less cropping not a lot of room for 50% ect thanks and I think the cloning really stands out but I do the best I can :confused:
