This was taken on an overcast day through my kitchen window using an on camera flash. That's why the birds look kind of bright and heavily processed, even though they're not. I lightened the background and did some blurring to obscure the noise in the darker areas. A little burning around the edges and on the feeder.

Interesting processing. I like the action you captured a lot, but I'm not as sure about the way the lower bird, especially, looks almost drawn in rather than photographed.

Technically a bit noisy and perhaps over-sharpened but such a priceless moment to capture, well done!

lol, like the title! Nice flight captured, although it's a little bright.

Not a sight captured everyday that's for sure. The background is distracting a bit, but the shallow DOP helps. Very interseting shot. Nice

Nioce capture, too much sharpening I think, but colors and contrast and freeze motion was nice. Good catchlight in the eyes too.

Is this an HDR layer on top a normal BG layer? I can't figure it out, not sure i'm a fan either. 5
