Both of these were taken with flash and using my makeshift diffuser. I didn't crop either one and both are with the same settings. Resized, some work in levels, usm and the despeckle thing in elements 2.

ISO 800, 1/200th, F5.6, 400mm

Hi Houston, nicely exposed and the bird's head is good and sharp. No evidence of direct flash so your diffuser continues to do it's job; maybe you should market it :-)

The belly of the bird is a touch soft; since you are using a fill flash perhaps you could stop down to 8 and see if that gets the whole bird sharp. Anyway, good shot.

Thanks Normcar. I reallized I should have used a smaller aperture after I downloaded. But you don't go back out there and redo it. But I will try to remember that for the next ones. I know now that when you are up fairly close as I was on this one the dof just isn't enough.

btw I had another one or two that I was going to post last night but the server went down for my isp and that put me out of business at home last night.
