    If I may suggest... try converting to B&W and leave the little girl in color.

    So, I went birding with my friend again...these Tern's were all around us, coming quite close actually (just a few feet at times). They were diving into the water picking out worms for dinner. It was quite a show.

    Mo ghràidh, toriaj, that's a wonderful shot. The colors are superb... maybe a little darkening, to bring them out more? The shot's framed just right.

    Toriaj,

    Not sure myself. I like it, but something is bothering me... It is likely just the resize for web that is bugging me. There is so much detail, but the contrast looks a bit too strong. I seem to be struggling with finding where the focus is. (wish I could see the shot while typing to be more specific). But from memory, the contrast being high seems to want to make a lot of the frame "appear" in focus while it really isn't? So it is a bit confusing for me. What exactly was your focus on? Can you post a less contrasty version? Was it shot in raw or jpg?

    Hope I don't sound rude here, I really don't mean to be. I really think that some changes to PP can fix this (especially if it is raw). Heck, maybe that is the look you were going for... This IS art after all.

    tcadwall, don't you think that the composition is good? I mean, the fence leads your eye up the tree, and the tree leads you up to the clouds. At least, that is what I thought when I saw it. I like it a lot.

    Rooz, did you edit the picture with the little girl? That is fantastic. The contrast to the men is just awesome.

    I do in fact like the composition. It works. To me the composition works, because the break in the clouds at the top of the frame produces some drama and different contrast.

    I didn't mean to sound like it wasn't a keeper. I am just wondering if the PP included a large contrast boost, or if the in camera settings were responsible for it. Maybe it is a combination of contrast and sharpening? Something about the high level of contrast is bugging me. That is why I also mentioned that resizing for the web may be part of the problem. Many times when you resize to a web-rez, the result might look different than the original... especially with high-contrast images. IOW - A print from the shot may look very good, and a higher - rez view on screen might look good as well. So maybe the PP is just not right for this res only.

    Blurry water drops on a petal of a Mother's Day flower taken with my Mother's Day gift - the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro. I love my family! I'm not very good at manual focus yet, but I'm practicing a lot.
