I have a photographic memory, just wish I'd remember to take the lens cap off more often! :oops:

Double-crested Cormorant. (Given a cool tone in LR because the light was pretty crappy.)

That's a lovely shot, so I hope you won't be offended by this.

To me, the bird looks like it was cut out and pasted onto a photo of blurred foliage. Maybe that's just what happens when you nail the sharpness and the background is really diffuse? Or is it your preferred processing style?

Or is it me ...

Only your best friends will tell you...

Thanks for your observation -- just one photo -- no cut and paste. There was some room behind the bird and this was taken at sun rise and the sun slightly to my left and behind me.

Maybe I over-sharpen slightly.

I appreciate your feedback--thanks again and definitely not offended!


Here is the same picture with less sharpening applied--I think it looks better..
