Been running the G9 for a while now but not been happy with the PP results using my previous methods in ACR and Photo shop.

This is one from yesterday PP pushed to my old limits.

This has used the same adjustments but i took them further, it also took me down the road of wanting and feeling happy with a larger image, do you think i am going down the right road or does something hit you that i dont see.

I like both images (the eyes are sharp in both and the wings tips slightly blurred giving a sense of flight and motion), but the first one appeals to me more because of the 'escape' room for the bird on the right.:thumbsup:

Mike, IMHO you definitely making your G9 combo sing, I prefer the large version for the detail it brings!
I would suspect your local ducks are ducking when they see you in the offing.

PS sorry about the awful pun. :sorry:

I like the 2nd larger image. Less out of focus Background to distract from a the duck - great shot.

Like both images, but the cropped version I think has just that better composition. Looks really excellent to my eyes.

I like the second better, as IMO the duck got lost a bit in the first. That being said, Martin's comment about "escape room" is well take, and you could change the aspect ratio, to include more room on the right. Maybe try 3:2?

I also prefer the first for the "escape room". I'd maybe leave the width the same and crop to a 3:2 or even a 16:9 to lose some of the distracting sky top left.

I really enjoy your images. That G9 and LEICA DG 100-400/F4.0-6.3 lens, plus your experience is getting better and better. I would suggest you try to upload the image in a bigger size. That way, you would get, say the first image composition, which I like the best of the two images, but allow the viewer to click on the image to view it bigger, to see more detail. As far as "pushing the PP in the second image", I think you did well.

The PP whatever you did looks OK to me. I like the second image better, but that is because I am also gravitating to longer lenses to get more detail and punch.
