Down on the south coast,a wildlife preserve for birds near Eastbourne,UK.
Took these two back in January this year not long after having got my Canon 500d.
About half an hour between the two.The first was a jpg, tweaked the contrast a bit but otherwise as shot I think.tried to remove the lens flare unsuccessfully,so left alone.
The second after the sun had gone shot in Raw.Had to lighten the picture in levels but otherwise pretty much as shot,in particular the colour.
