    I guess it's odd that I've always been interested in birds, but have little interest in photographing them. Or perhaps it isn't - I like photographing churches but don't attend one! Maybe I'm just contrary.

    This nesting moorhen, untypically, was nesting in the open, so an easy shot. For more info go to http://photoreflect.blogspot.com

    Nice shot Tony, I can say that I have never seen such a bird, and you have captured it very nicely., a little more exposure would bring out the eye, and it could be helped with the shadow/highlight tool in PS. With your permission I will give it a try.

    Cool - I've never seen a moorhen.

    Thanks Tony.. My simple minded thing suggests that the creative process of photography dosen't end at the click of the shutter., I enjoy the tweaking process, and I hope by doing this to your photo, you are not offended.

    Of course, having the original file would have made my work more productive, but here is what I was able to do with your shot in about 5 minutes.. I know for sure Digital Matt would have done better!

    I did buy a PS CS book/instruction guide today, I should have read it before working with your shot!

    More detail in the eye certainly improves the shot Raymond - it gives more emphasis to the bird's head. Thanks for the effort and interest you put in.
