Mario with regards from Canada.

Interesting action shot, Enda.
Great timing.
Thanks for sharing the pic.


Excellent timing and most of action was framed well. Often action shots happen to quick (as in this case) to capture the entire scene. What is framed is very fine. One comment regarding post processing: note the white line along the contour of each bird ... this is a result of over sharpening. When using the unmask sharpening function, sharpen to your liking and when a "halo" appears, back off your degree of sharpening until the halo just disappears. I learned NOT to sharpen image until AFTER resizing. If you sharpen before and then reduce in size, the resulting reduction often is overly sharpened and you can't fix it. Reduce, THEN sharpen if you so desire. Also, the blues show too much saturation. Your f stop and speed are right for the action.

TFS and best regards,
