Be gentle with me on this one as I did the unthinkable... This little fella was looking for his first bug under the melting snow... so when I saw him through the double glazing, I thought give it a go.

Almost didn't take this because of the double glassing.

No sign that this was behind glass so well done for that. Difficult lightening, too, with the blackbird(??) being almost backlit so nigh impossible to make any more of its details. I really feel for our wildlife asthe snows keep coming; thousands of sheep have been buried, I believe, with the inevitable loss of life in many cases; very sad.

Nice try Mark and considering, as Alan says He is backlit, not much visible detail, some tho', it is still an engaging shot. I love these birds, argumentative with great characters so well done for getting this shot. I hope he was lucky and found something

As said a good effort especially considering it's through glass, well done.

Hi Mark, noted and agree with the comments above - nice effort

A nice shot being taken quickly whilst the bird was with you, having had more time I guess you would have dialled in +1 exposure compensation, which would have helped enormously.
I hope the blackbird found something decent to eat.

A very difficult subject Mark but you done a very good job with it imho and I luv the granular effect of the melting snow. As a matter of interest, how did you do the HDR? Did you shoot in RAW and produce several different exposures or was it done from a Jpeg original?

Shot in RAW and Picasa 3 has a superb HDR-ish adjustment tool with radius, strength and fade adjustment.

Thanks for the info Mark.

Hi Mark, and Welcome - 'gasp' ! You took this through double glazing !! Wow - whenever I do it there are like multiple reflections. Well Done!
