This guy was hanging out in the front yard this morning so I took a few shots. I used my Nikon 100mm 2.8 macro at f4. Maybe it was the wrong lens but the shots are decent. I have lots to learn but im having fun!

Looks as if it was the perfect lens for that dove. In this area the doves seem to spook very easily.

thanks for the kind words, I am still trying to figure out how to get my objects sharper. any suggestions for settings and comments are appreciated

Doves usually spook easy for us in this area too but this baby was a bit slow to know that lol. He could only fly in short 20ft bursts and then would rest again so im assuming these were his first few flights. I thanked him for letting me capture the moment and wished him luck :G

Very good shot. That's a great lens BTW, very sharp pic and good color. Are you using that lens on a DSLR ??

v12, I think all the information is there--the histogram looks perfect. The dove is so monochromatic that only a little levels adjustment and unsharp mask made it pop more, if that is what you wish.

JDar - I am in the process of fidning out how to use the unsharp function so i can tighten shots up a bit more, lots of learning, so little time
