    OK. I said before your photos are too dark in my eyes so I am not saying this again. But the second had a strange colour over the "white" bird and the background water is black. It is not right.

    Yeah… I was caught by Roger once for posting pictures way
    too late because I stubbornly wanted to finish what I started. :(
    Possibly… as I am looking for situations where a given image
    may be captured with considerations that have very little to do
    with birding. I rarely take a picture of a bird but I may capture
    images that happens to show a bird/s too. I work the same way
    with horses, goats and others.
    Yes, thanks for the strange colour… sorted. :cool:
    When it comes to the BG — background water is black. It is not
    right. Water has no colour but is highly specular and if what is
    seen is "black" then that well be reflected as it is "seen".

    Whilst believing that water does have colour, (by reason of particles it contains), you are correct in that it also reflects surrounding colour, be that blue from the sky, green from the leaves, orange from the reeds or yes black from the shadows. :)

    It's a 'specimen' from Slimbridge Daniel, not a wild bird ... just illustrates the reflections. :)

    Unless it is my old eyes letting me down there appears to be a strange halo along the bird's head in the second image. If it is not a halo what is it?

    Phew. I saw the photograph this morning and I thought I see nothing wrong with it ... my eyes must be really bad since it had a colour cast last night. Then I read your comment :)

    Your old eyes are serving you well Norman… :)

    No, this is not a halo but a very ugly example of
    re-re-recompression artefact.

    Every time a file is saved after some work was done
    to it, the changes are saved in a compressed form
    adding to the previously compressed version… will
    correct that… thanks, Norman :cool:
