So I worked on a couple of other shots of the RWBB they are a bit more of a crop not sure they work for me.  CC would be most welcomed.

As one who has only limited PP abilities I can`t offer much help, though criticism takes far less skill.  Whatever you are doing creates an outline around the bird as if it were stuck into a different scene than the original, I hope the more experienced guys can suggest a way round this issue.

Some nice detail in the black plumage but Geedee spotted the haloing.  maybe from slightly over sharpening ?

Are you using PS and a high pass filter ?

Nice work. The second is very nice. Maybe get just a little bit lower to on eye level. A very soft vignette will bring more attention to the second bird.

Judging by the shadows I am guessing these were taken after the golden hour which makes for difficult lighting on any subject - especially a black one. The first two hours after sunrise and the last two before sunset give your subject that warm soft light that really makes an image pop.

Thanks for the comments. I did shapren in LR but in PS I tried to darken the back ground not sure which or combo of both gives the haloing. Yes John these were shot around 5:00 to 6:00 about an hour before better light.  Just seeing what I could do given what light I had knowing it could be better.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
