    We went to Smith McGee Bridge in Hartwell, GA this morning the osprey have a nest on the disabled bridge. The lighting was not as good as it was last year at this time but I will go back next weekend and try again. Here is my best shot of the day...and had to use flash to get this one!

    Pretty good capture, especially under the less than ideal conditions Chris.

    It looks good considering the weather and sky conditions.
    We can't complain..we need the rain real bad.
    Maybe we'll go with you next weekend?

    Yeah...I dont think he is flying first class...should have paid extra for the upgrade tickets!
     
  8. Nice image Chris. Looks like you got pretty good detail on the underside with what little lighting you used, perhaps a touch of shadow/highlight tool could do the trick?
