    Very sharp!! Can you post the lens you were using? And did you post it straight from the camera or after some tweakage in PS?

    Hi thanks,
    It was taken using a little budget Sigma 70-300mm.
    The image has had some "tweaking".
    Firstly its been cropped and Ive messed with curves a little to bring out the feather detail slightly.
    Its also had some USM and a very distracting leaf removed from the right hand side.
    Also its been run through "Neat Image" just to soften up the background a little and bring the bird forward a bit after it had been sharpened.
    Heres the original straight from camera uncropped and resized..

    Heres the exif stuff..
    Sigma 70-300mm @ 195mm
    1/40thSec @ F/5.6 ISO 200
