Duco has a valid point imo
So does joshilewis
(but Scipio said that he did nothing on computer)
bit of photo editing can do wonders
The bird taking of is about the bird after the crop
The cropping can be done in photobucket for eg.
Photobucket has some nice tools for editing
Free and easy.
Crop is one of them

Only the originals! You'll probably need an external harddisk for that, so why not send it on a 2 TB external one, with both USB and network ports?

I'll sell them to the highest bidder, and have a little space for my own photos. :whistle: :lol: :lol:

Most of my originals are on my 320gb external, the rest on DVDs. I'll look into couriering costs ;)

Here's a quick shot from last week close to the Tsitsikamma coast.

I would have liked more mid tones, but obviously a high contrast photo could not be avoided, what do you think?

Stunning!! Maybe one of our monitors are not calibrated correctly, mine more than likely, but I would have gone slightly lighter. Great shot!!! :clap: A bit of light in the eye would have made all the difference.

Yip, could have gone a bit lighter, but would have started to loose some detail in the splashes of white drops of water in the wave. I tried it now quickly, but I like the detail in the wave and opted to keep it.

If I could have a small reflector next to the bird reflecting some light back onto it, it would have been perfect... :doh:

If only the head was a little bit higher
Or the wing a little bit lower
But you caught a great moment on camera and love your composition and captured a
perfect splash of water.

Nice shot B5S :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: , only thing i would have done different is to include the whole jaw instead of cutting it off and maybe a little sharpening but colour is great :clap:
