Hi David. Thanks for posting -- the picture really does need to be viewed large to see the unique detail in the face and feet.
Have you considered cloning or cropping out the 2 dark spots on the bottom. If I were you I'd also experiment with adding a bit more sky to the left hand side just so that that wing tip isn't clipped by the edge of the frame.
Take care, and keep on clicking!! CK Nikonian in Ontario, Canada
I wanted to post the frame as I caught it. I can work through the issues in PS, but did minimal processing on my 11 inch Mac on the boat. The bird is a Whitecap Albatross, has a wing span about the same as mine, 2 meters. This is taken inside of Shelter Islands on Doubtful Sound (which is actually a Fjord). Albatross are amazing birds. Southern Royals (endangered) are about 50% larger than the Whitecap and have wingspan of 3 meters. I have some pisc of Southern Royals, but nothing like this. I also got some good shots of Shy Albatross off the southern coast of Tassie. Again, nothing this good.
What's wrong with the wing, other than I clipped it slightly. I actually like that fact. It reminds me of where I got the shot--bouncing around on the rear deck with one hand on the boat so I could stand.
