Thank you for your kind observations Rossuziers,
I usually minimise the post processing, these are straight out of the camera not even crop for upright alignment.
Out coastal dune vegetaion is always very grey and after 3 years of drought very crisp & crunchy looking.
I find the light here at the moment very harsh & many photos are how can I say "un-inviting" compared to the lush eden like images that eminate from milder climes.
I think the Artist did a great job on the birds.
