    #1 - Cormorant, stepping up to start the dry off process.

    #2 - Checking to see if the "clothes line" method is the best option for drip drying.

    #3 - Baby crow getting a taster to make it stop squawking. Mum was in the sun, baby was in the shade - amazing how different it makes the colours appear!

    Nice action here mate. These birds are pretty hard to expose especially when you have harsh light.

    Thanks Sundar. Harsh light indeed. Sometimes we have to forfeit "perfect light", which is OK, because some things we want photos of don't always fall under the best of lighting conditions - which in my case is most of the time :)

    Thanks for looking David. Never good with harsh light but the different lighting between the 2 birds was what caught my attention.

    Great images Greg! Particularly like #2, though I wonder if a little midtone burning to darken the feathers on the body and right wing will bring more contrast (ie impact) to the shot

    Thanks for that Pete. I carried out you suggestion and I think it works a bit better. I decided on a few other subtle adjustments when I revisited the image - as is the case on many occasions :)
