I agree, great exposure and sharp, sharp, sharp.

Please tell me that you are using the Panasonic teleconveter.

I just bought one and it supposed to be here tomorrow.

Nice job,
smac

Thanks guys. No teleconverter on these. He was pretty close. I only have the Raynox 2.2 pro. It's great for shots I couldn't otherwise get. Here's an example of a hawk I got that was pretty far away yesterday. When you get yours, please post some pics so I can compare. Thanks.

Cool shots. You encouraged me with a lot of photo's to go buy the 2.2x raynox

The last one does have a lot of chromatic abberation. If you have photoshop. -> select -> color range. And pick the most bright color of the CA, then play with the fuzziness, and when you have a good selection, you screw down the saturation of the selection. GONE are green and purple edges you might already knew this, but it works well (dunno if it works this way with elements)

More bird pics bmullen !!

I hope you don't mind me doing this. But I made an example of your picture without the CA. I like it

Great shots and so well defined against the snow. But with respect, you can keep the snow. Brrr. Brr!

Good exposure with the snowy background. I have a couple of these
wrens coming in to my place on a daily basis. They are just so cute.

Tim, thanks for the tip. I have elements three and would love to figure out how to do what you did. I will definitely try when I get some time. Your fix looks great. One problem I have noticed with the Raynox add on is that when I shoot a back lit shot I get a lot of chromatic aberration.
