    Thanks so much April! You know, I was never really that interested with birds, and here I am 47, and something about shooting them fasinates me. I guess it's the challenge, and there beauty.

    Archangel, I do all my editing in Photoshop, and resizing in the Nikon Picture project. I usually shoot in RAW, adjust the exposure, then I use the levels adjustment, touch up the saturation, tune in the shadow/highlight, and add a hit of sharpening if it needs it. Now, with the neat image plug in, I run some of the high ISO shots through it, to see if I can reduce the noise level.

    That is my basic workflow, very simple and fast. Some shots need a lot more work, working with layers, and other adjustments.

    One tool I am learning now is the USM.. unsharp mask.. I still need to study it further, and develope the "eye" that Airic, Digital Matt and JM have for Graphics. It sure doen't come easy!

    Thanks ray....yes you may find the USM filter useful for your work, i use it on some of my bird shots. I just presumed you may already use it cuz your images are so sharp, and you only really need it if the focusing needs attention. But if your images are razor sharp anyway (like this one) it probably wouldn't have much effect. Still its useful for those shots you may have archived that need a bit of treatment. Thanks for the other info, its useful to know what routine a hardend wildlife photog like yourself uses. v.useful :thumbup:
