    Spent a few hours at a new location...plenty of Corellas around. Here's one I like...just about to land. Basic adjustments in ACR and PS and cropping. Had to reduce the whites a little. Cheers.

    Lovely bird. The look back head angle is beyond perfect. Love the soft blue sky. And the blue around the eye as well. And the leaves add. One of your very best.

    Hi Paul ... works very well as presented for me .
    Cool pose of the subject .
    Well timed shot of these magnificent birds , albeit the farmers do hate them

    Way better than a composite

    I'm really liking this frame Paul. The wings up are great for this shot as he is landing. Great timing and all around work!

    The white and blue go great together. I do like the inclusion of the branches. Detail on the bird is excellent.
