Some pretty nice shots here for what appears to be a pretty blah day for
light. I like the pose on the last one. The detail around the head is really good.
Too bad there wasn't a little directionality to the light to bring out the
detail in the black areas.

I really like shot number two with the cream background.

Nice shots Normcar. And good exposure. Talk about a toughie to meter.I guess you have to choose between the black or white-which to meter for. I think you made the right choice. White detail and solid black for contrast. Nicely done! Cheers....thekman.

Hi Normcar. These Peckers are really nice to me. Sharp with very good detail. I have them quite often in my by but so far I just haven't gotten a good capture. Always too high up the tree and want be still. :lol: I did get some pretty good shots yesterday afternoon as I got off of work early for a change. Didn't get to post any of them last night (busy doing honey-do's). BTW I got FocusMagic now and can't wait to try it out.

Cheers

Houston

These boys need to pony up for the beak trim when they get their haircutt!

More nice shots, Norm.

I appreciate the comments on visual effect and metering on these birds as well as the cute little commentary on the beard that this ruffian sports. Like any black and white bird it's a matter of choices. However, I could have over and under exposed using an exposure bracketing but I'm usually too lazy and spontaneous for that sort of thing :-) Lazy mostly.

You got the part I liked about the creamy background Alady, that's one of the major attractions for me in that particular one.

Houston, good luck with the software and do you have a honey-I-won't-do list too?
