Default Evidence that the egg came second

OK - going to try this whole thing uploading thing from scratch, on my own.

To me, this view through my window is evidence of creation.

You've a nice line there both starting with or ending with the bird. Not knowing much of anything about birds, I do know that some eat the seeds within pine cones, so the first thought I had was that this was evidence of a bird's dinner table.

It looks as if you needed to stabilize the camera because the photo is blurry, probably from camera shake. Whenever possible in a situation where you aren't using a tripod, lean the camera on something, lean yourself on something, press the shutter release at the end of an exhale... There are more such things but they aren't coming to mind. Anyone else?

Barb, I agree with you totally about the picture quality. Perhaps this would be more appropriately titled, "Evidence that I learned to upload all by myself..." This was my first day with the new camera, and it was taken on 200mm zoom, through a window, and then toyed with quite a bit before I tried to restore it to its original state. I did lean on the window sill, exhaled while gently sqeezing the shutter, elbows firmly (but not forcedly) pressed to my core. You're right about the tripod. Hubby should like that sitting next to the dinner table! Thank you for the input! Very good review of my college days - still good information after 15-20 years - some things never change!

Aside from working with pixels, all the information about film photography is still completely relevant. As a matter of fact, I get more out my old books than I do out of the new.

Always work on a copy and you want have to worry about the original. It is better to have good focus first, than to try and correct it later. If you must handhold use at least 1/250th/sec exposure and hold real still. In some situations like this I use a small beanbag my son made for me. JMHO :lol:

They work beautifully. I have one too, and wouldn't you know it, I forgot all about it this morning and ended up with a whole lot of blur. So, not only is a beanbag handy to have, but it's also a good idea to use it.

Right. Don't forget that a large number of us here are OF's. (I just know you can figure that one out. 8) )
