Today was awesome even though the wind was still kicking up a bit. I was very pleased with the variety of shots I got today. This camera is freaking awesome. I shot in Shutter Priority, 1/1250sec, Active-D lighting on normal, ISO 800, in camera NR-low, WB- Auto I thought but I just looked and the exif says manuel :-? oh well, so much to learn, and no EV compensation with the exception of maybe 2-3 shots. All shots are right out of the camera with the exception of a little cropping no other adjustments were made. Oh, I did use the shadow adj on the ground squirrel but that's it. I am really amazed by what this camera can do. I haven't even begun to approach being even mildly profecient with all of the adjustments on this baby.

I am going to post a few shots and then provide the link to the rest on my Smugmug page. There are just too many to try and post them all.

Thanks for looking and as always please feel free to comment, good or bad. I can take it. :lol:

Steve

Another burst shot of the Egret. I liked the shadow of it's feet on the wings. Looks like it's got four legs.

Steve, all of the shots are great, but the first flight shot of the egret is simply astounding. I love the interplay of light and shadow and the hues thus produced.
