As the Sun set in the forest preserve, the last rays hit this RCK thru the red leaves. No matter how I try to manipulate the WB, it seems different everytime ! This one still is red biased ?

Looks nice to me Shreeni, but maybe a tad bit over sharpened ~ Ron

Thanks Ron. I just went back to the setting and noticed that the USM radius is set to 1.5 instead of my usual 0.5

That evening lighting can be tough. I think the WB looks a little off but not too bad. I donít know if you have the pixels left for it but it might be worth cropping it a little tighter and making the image a bit darker.

At least you caught him setting still Shreeni, these guys can drive you nuts I'll second the tighter crop suggestion.

I'll leave the technical talk to those who know what they're talking about.
The Peanut Gallery thinks this is a swell picture.

Nice one, Shreeni.
I think the pose makes it cool that there is lots of space above him.
A vertical crop could exaggerate it even more.

Shreeni , a very nice capture.

The background, the light, the exposure, the bird, post production......no one on this board gets it right all the time.

You are doing just fine
