    Very good guess .... if you look closely he has a travel coffee mug on the fence post next to the tripod

    I think you're right, it just looks a little out of focus, nothing wrong with the steps you applied IMHO.

    Joel & Bob,

    Any chance you could post any of pics above prior to editing them? I'm curious how much improvement you made in PP versus the original picture.

    I thought that was a beer. Hmmm, maybe a tad too early for that, unless you put a raw egg in it of course!

    Beautiful Joel! So, I assume you have applied the same technique to a certain degree as Bob on the flying birds?

    Northern Cardinal in Snow

    Here's one from near my bird feeder.

    Canon 60D f/8 1/640 second ISO 160 using the 55-250 lens @ 250mm. The only PP was rotating and cropping.

    I shoot in RAW and the images would be too large ... if you want to see an jpeg converted straight from RAW and reduced in size I can do that.

    Here is one....

    The original is still quite good, but the wings on the top bird especially look much better in the processed version. Thanks for posting the original.
