[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken again from the bird hide near Skukuza, an excellent spot! Late afternoon after a week of rain and mist, this was the first chance I got with good lighting that peeped out the clouds for a while.

RAW, converted to TIFF, levels and then velvia plugin, 20D plugin sharpen, crop, resize and framed.

Comments welcome as always!

Very well composed with good sharpness and a great profile pose Tim. I did a quick workshop. Well done and Thank You!

Tim, good capture of your bird, I looked at the workshop, back and forth, and can not see what was changed or improved, possibly a little crisper in the neck feathers but not really noticable on my monitor. You did a good job Tim

Hi Tim

Lovely bird! Well composed and good POV. Nice detail and sharpness. Very good!


A lovely bird that you have captured Tim.

Excellent composition, details, colors, lighting is great, and pose.

Howard's ws helps with the overall sharpness and contrast, but an otherwise wonderful image.

Thank you for sharing it with us!

Great shot, well framed and good detail on subject. The subject is taking in a little sun on the face, nice one.

thats quite a nice shot, very sharp and nice details. Excellent composition.

Hi Tim,
the pose and the POV are very good.
Well composed and good details. The Shallow DOF Well here,
it makes the bird stand out nice from the BG.
It's a bit bright and Howard did a very good WS.
Well done.

Hi Tim
