Argaty Red Kites

There are too many attractions round here, we keep meaning to go to see the red kites at Argaty be we always seem to be short of a round tuit.

We finally went yesterday. I need to fine tune the exposure and focusing, but I don’t think this is too bad:

great shot, thanks for the play!

I think, here is not so much to do, just choose a different crop and liften the darker parts, thats it.

Thanks for the play!

My quick edit. I used a mask to sharpen the bird and the same mask inverted to soften the background.
