Ray, I think you and I are struggling with the same challenge: the lighting on the birds gives away the fact that the image has been composited. I've been scouring the internet for techniques to process an image to make it appear to have been backlit by the moon. It can be done, but it seems that the effort involved is significant. Probably makes more sense to search our archives for a backlit bird in flight, or even just going out and capturing a new image.

Hi Andy

Yes...you have hit the nail on the head about the lighting on the birds....must keep looking.

Best wishes Ray
