We have some new arrivals in the garden. A small flock of Ring-Necked Parakeets. This encounter tonight with a resident magpie resulted in a so-so picture with regards to noise and sharpness. So I decided to b+w the image, not try and sharpen it, and actually increase the noise.

Let me know if you think it works.

The birds definitely work for me. Not so sure about the dotty sky though - perhaps if it were blurred a bit?

What was the result of the encounter?

There was no fight, they seem to tolerate each other.

+1 for me

There are some shots where just capturing the moment is the important thing, then making the best of what you've got is the next step. It's not the clinically sharp perfect picture that seems to be the expectation nowadays but the drama is certainly there
