    Thanks everyone for their suggestion and help. The gift was definitely appreciated by my friend. Myself, I have figured out that I'm not a 'single malt scotch' kinda guy. I'm more the "mix an...

    I get what you're saying. But in rotating the image you are placing it in your preferred perspective, as opposed to the actual position of the bird. In your version, all the berries are hanging...

    Thanks for the diopter tip. I'll try adjusting it without a lens, and with a bright light source. So far I've just used the outdoor ambient light with a lens on.
