    nice pix. forest kingfisher I assume? guess the repaired lens does the biz.
    if you could darken the top rhs it would lift the image a bit. you got great contrasting colours around the bird but the bright stuff at the top catches the eye a bit

      Cheers Stephen. Yes, Forest Kingfisher.
      Good call on the brighter section. I did use the highlight slider to reduce it some already, ands as it looked much better than originally, I went with it. But good to get feedback from a fresh set of eyes to know that it needs more.

      The Tamron seems to be performing better than it was originally, my keeper rate has improved. And I think the quality of the images is a bit better, the adjustments they did seem to have made a difference.
      Cheers, Brad.

        Pretty bird, I don't see them often in Tassie but they are here. Need to go bush again I think! (Had to go to Lord Howe for the last KF shots).

        I think you did pretty well with it.
        It's the little things!

        Cheers, Greg C.

          Very nice Brad. Good colours with the bird well-placed in the frame. I think the rear view with the head turned works well in these. I agree with Stephen about the bright background in the first image.

            Lovely capture. Light probably hasn't been kind to you.

            Always hard to get the blacks and whites correctly exposed. I don't know how you'd get detail in the blacks without blowing the whites

            Still trying to make the ordinary look extraordinary

              Thanks for the comments Greg, Alan , and Alan. It would be nice if our sensors could handle another couple of stops of dynamic range, maybe one day
              Cheers, Brad.
