I've never been big on white bg's on birds in trees.
This, however has got me more open minded. Done very well!

To be honest I didn't get a choice re the sky/background. I looked out of my office window, saw the bird in the tree, opened the window, grabbed my camera which luckily had a 400mm lens plus extender on it , crossed my fngers and fired off a salvo of shots ... :grin:

Great shot Tony. (any relation to Henry?) I concur with all of the above comments. Maybe adding a little bit of blue sky might just please the anti white sky brigade :)

I couldn't resist with the blue sky thing. just a soft blue without going OTT. Quick and easy to do with a mid blue to light blue gradient on a luminosity mask.

Cheers Tony. If you have Photoshop I can do a tutorial. I'm sure many PS users would like to get rid of some grey skies.

May not be today, I'm building another PC for a client and he comes down from the bush tomorrow to pick it up, so I'll be a busy boy.
