[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my second attempt at posting a photo (first one not so great). I took this picture on the intracoastal waterway while moving a yacht back to North Carolina from the Bahamas. The height advantage of the boat was wonderful as these ospreys are nesting on navigational markers along the way. The parent Ospreys were quite uneffected by my presents as they are so accustom to passing boats. The time of the year (Spring) was just right as there were many nests with chicks. I saw as many as 4 in one nest (later post).

My skill levels are very low and would appreciate any comments, help, suggestions etc. I cropped, sharpened, fooled a little with brightness and contrast.

Lastly..Thank you zackwalker35 and ellis49 for your welcome and comments. Hopefully, I managed to post a larger picture for you this time.

It looks to me like you over sharpened a great deal. If you post the non edited version I would try to do a workshop with a detailed note . Jim
