    Rich,

    I love the motion in the red wing blackbirds. But 'a few', sure wish I had a few dollars on that same scale

    That's a keeper Rich.

    What's with the multiple light sources in the eyes?

    I might be inclined to clone most out and possibly increase the contrast just on the eyes.
    How'd you get so close?

    It was indoors, an Eagle festival at a wildlife refuge.
    It was raining so they held the event inside. The lights are ceiling
    lights, the bg is a bookcase! Great idea about the pp, thanks

    Rework

    DPR, Tried to work on the owl a bit.
    All contrast adjustments are global and used dust spot remover
    for the lights, but I think it looks better.

    Rich, brilliant shots. Amazing colours and detail. The processing on the second shot is excellent.

    I actually liked the reflections in the eyes, but the second shot does look a lot more as though it was actually taken in the wild.

    Thanks Dennis, after removing the catch lights it made the eyes less lively.
    Although I agree it looks more natural. So now I have both!
