I followed that cormorant flying through the mist and turbulence and captured this when he was especially close to the rock.

He seemed to enjoy this very much.

I applied some sharpening, some noise reduction in chrominance (the ISO being of 800). Burn and dodge and in selective colour, levels adjustments in cyan. And some contrast. Basic adjustments. All in layers naturally. Thanks.
