I had a little time to play trying to improve a negative looking pic of the bird captured earlier this week. The canal was still frozen over with just small areas where the bird could fish and so she landed on various platforms to do her hunting.

Which one do you think works best please?

Taken using the Olympus OM D EM 1 mkll - Olympus 40-150 lens coupled with 1.4 converter - A.mode etc

Regards. Barr1e

Re: Kingfisher

Both nice Barrie.... that's a big help isn't it. I guess if pushed I would go with the first one as my favourite.

Re: Kingfisher

I really like the artistic look of the second. I would just prefer to see the frame with the kingfisher "on top" so you wouldn't have the frame line running through the bird.

Re: Kingfisher

Nice pictures both of them, Barr1e,

Number 2 you should print, frame and hang on your wall.
