Rippled Glass Reflections - Avocet by Jamie-MacArthur Rippled Glass Reflections - Avocet by Jamie-MacArthur
It is really hard to expose for Avocets especially in direct sunlight

How do you set the bias? For now, black and white birds seem to be outta my league o.O

you got to expose for the whites. Make sure you shoot in RAW about 1 stop under depending on the light conditions

There must be then more to it: when I do that with coots, the "bald" spot might not end up blown out, but if the pinkish hue of the beak is visible, most of the bird will be uniform black and the eye hard to find.
I suspect it's also about relative size of the subject in frame before any crops (and thus, focal lengths available).

Thank you! :)

Mainly Picasa. I suppose you recommend working with curves?
