    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    I prefer the one with the fill in flash, but I think it looks a tad too red

    I wonder if you had sharperned too much, both pictures look abit like cut and paste between the branch + bird with the background..

    I prefer the second picture too.

    actually I much prefer to use RAW sharpening in DPP and then transfer to PSCS2. I don't use USM any more in my fish pix.
