CommentThis is really a test upload to make sure all Bob's hard work and advice have paid off!
A blue wren taken on a walk with my wife, taken about 8.30 in full sun, the background, which is only the shade of a bush, came out surprisingly dark. Although its not perfect, I like how the sun has highlighted the color and detail on the wings. The back of the bird is a bit too dark. I haven't tried to correct this at this stage. This was sharpened and exported as per Bob's suggestions after having so much trouble with color profiles and noise in my previous upload.
Also shows the benefits of getting down low, the other images I took kneeling have bad shadows from the strong light
