This one is a "Before" & "After" comparison of a snatched shot that I almost deleted when Chimping after the Whistling Kite caught me unawares with the wrong settings.

Although you cannot make a silk purse from a sow's ear, the Canon 5D Mk IV and Adobe PS CC helped me rescue some details from the RAW file.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Know the feeling, the shadow recovery from the 5D4 sensor has helped me on many an occasion too.

Great shot, Shalu. It looks like he caught a small striper.

Wonderful in flight shot of the little blue heron, Mike. I like the very nice background, and the sharpness of the bird (not an easy shot to make).

Very nice in flight shot of the sandhill, Bryan. They are so much fun to photograph here in the winter, when we have so many in our area. Just out of curiosity, have you ever run across Art Morris at Bosque Del Apache? I know he frequents that spot with photography groups that he takes every year.

Great photo. Bosque is one of my favorite places. I'll be there again in January.
