Re: Goldfinches again.

Gedee, those are beautiful birds. It would be nice to see some images not impacted by glass. You have the opportunity to capture some beauties with these. I hope to see more!

Re: Goldfinches again.

Unless its so sunny that you have to be at 1/4000th and f10 to keep the exposure needle on its mark ;-) in these dark days - no so hot :-) Yup - that sun can be a bit harsh :oops: - Made me cry, take my ball and go home. We are going to be splitting some time between here and the camp, so I am not ...

Re: Goldfinches again.

I don't think I got anything suitable :-( The story of my endeavors. I love taking pictures; but if I am not going to throw it on the wall, it doesn't get a lot of screen time. Three meters is close. I am usually about 5 meters away shooting a 600mm equiv. I always keep my aperture wide open. In th...

Re: Goldfinches again.

Nice job in poor lighting conditions. Pixel peeped, and the focus was on. Nice detail in the eye and the feet; throughout the bird too. I just set out my feeders again due to the cold and snow.

Re: Falls from the other side - sun at back

I appreciate it Rod. I am struggling, but that's OK. It took a few years to get birds, and I know I can't see yet. I have a long way to go. I really like mixed light, and I am seeing how that can be an issue. I appreciate the CC Rod!

Re: Falls from the other side - sun at back

I edited it. I had much more shadow in the front, and I brought it up. What do you mean by "harsh". I am not happy with the focus - I think that renders the image useless. I tried to incorporate the sky and the colors this time. I think those are good. The mid section sucks because it's out of focus...

Falls from the other side - sun at back

Well, I am not sure what to do about this one....the focus is off a bit, and perhaps F22 is too much. Anyway - CC it boys!

Re: Retired fergie..

Gedee; the bird pics are especially "snap & run". You have no choice because wildlife moves quickly. All my pics are a result of understanding my camera an having presets for particular settings. I have a static bird setting, a BIF setting CAF w/o tracking and a BIF setting with CAF+TR. It's point a...

Re: Retired fergie..

I snap and run all the time. I have filters, but they've never been out.
