Common Shelduck [Tadorna tadorna]

I shot these on the River Severn, at different times within two days.

  2. Better than the ones I found. These look a bit bright Bob. Have you Spydered recently or is it Blogger. I had trouble a few days ago. Looked good before I uploaded then it all went tits up.

    1. What is Spydered, I will look at Google.

    2. Spyder is a colour calibration machine for screens.

    3. When Blogger throws a missy fit it doesn't help. If you haven't got a Spyder or calibration machine then they are reasonable. Reasonable when compared to Photoshop, lenses and cameras.
