    Some Birds from Me

    A couple from a nearby lake. The first is a Masked Lapwing (according to my bird id book!!) and I just liked the formation of the ducks in the second.

    Excellent shots. Both have to be seen big for proper appreciation.

    #! - pity about the dark blob at the top. Probably too big to clone out. But does not detract from the excellent detail that you have captured.

    #2 - perhaps consider cleaning up the "debris" along the top diagonal?

    Nice shots Dave, I agree with Bobo's suggestions. Clone out the dark reflection at the top of #1 and clean up the floating debris is the 2nd. That will bring them from good to excellent.

    Thanks Bobo, Christina and Joe. Your comments are much appreciated. I had a go at the cloning you suggested and came up with this. It does improve the images I think.
