    You're very kind Mark. The results would be much better on the larger image.

    Thanks for comments. I was on a bridge, so lowering the camera would not make much effect. Isac seems to made the best of the photo..:-)

    I like the 1st image the most.

    Are you able to get the camera lowest to the ground? It would remove the water as the predominant background and reduce the camouflaging effect of the plumage.

    This is the unprocessed original. So not too much of a crop...:-)

    I dont mind the original image as posted, any closer crops are revealing issues with the image quality.

    the reposts have perhaps had a bit too much shadow lift and looks somewhat unnatural to my eyes.

    wondering what sort of crop was involved with the original image too.

    Much better shot. Shadows (as Alan suggested) or a bit of dodging on the bird would lift it.
    I have a great Dodge & Burn action for Photoshop if you want it (freebie). It's included with the Action Set called "Isac Images LUMINOSITY MASKS".
    Just unzip the file and double click on both the ATN and ABR files to install the action and required brushes.
    Download HERE or from the Photoshop Tab on my website.

    Just a quick tip to reset your brushes back to 100% Flow and Opacity: With the brush tool selected hit "0" Zero on the top number key and then hold SHIFT and hit "0" again.

    Let me know how you get on or if you need any help.
    Cheers, Greg.

    I prefer the second shot as it shows more detail and separation from the background. A shadows lift would probably improve it too.

    Thanks for comments and advice. The dipper kept coming towards me, this is one of the last photos, he was almost under my feet...:-)

    I agree with David on the BG but that's the thing about wildlife shots, you get what you can, when you can. I think a tighter crop would really help and a good amount of shadows lift helps with the background. Boosted he colours on the bird and did some dodging as well to brighten the white feathers.
    I see you used Centre Weighted Average, most times for birds I would use spot metering.
    I hope you don't mind my edit. It would be much better on the original sized image.

    Nice shot. Kinda blends into the background a bit.
