    A nice grouping, Rob - and I like the contrasting colour of their rock perch.

    I really like this one. Interesting to see the difference in the colouration on the bills. Looks like you've lost a bit of detail on the birds when you added noise reduction?

    I really love the way you captured all 3 of the birds, nice perch and lovely complimentary background. I do however see a lot of posterization in the background possible due to the noise reduction program. If you could adjust that then it's perfect.

    What a great trio Rob. I agree with Maria about the posterisation.

    Love this shot with the contrasting colours and the alignment of the birds so that you can see each of their eyes. I can also see the posterization.
