    He was sooo CUTE and cocked his little head to get a better look at me, down below ! with the 36 Chicken Wings and Sausages roasted












    I hired the 300 from Ian & Julia - it was terrbily heavy and I think I would prefer the 90-250 telephoto so I could back off as the came in close (I got a lot of tail feathers, all on their own NO rest of the bird

          Tom the white is SUN GASP ! not a sharpening/oversharp

          I shall email it to you (also trying to find the Triumph cans photos - lost them but now have some gold and chrome air bottles from the pistols yet to photograph them but you will enjoy them esp. Kalaiderscope fun )

            Hi Chevvy,

            Here is my result of some tweaking, all done in Photoshop, some Dodging on the Kite plus a small amount of selective Clarity with a small amount of selective sharpening around the eyes and beak.

            It's a great capture I'm envious

              If you feed kites, they need the bones, fur and feathers for good health:

                That's a lovely clear tweak of a great shot.
