Grateful thanks to Normcar...granted these pale in comparison to his posts (and many others). But seeing his super shots inspired me to try for myself. I'm very happy with these, tho they are hardly in the same league as many fabulous shots posted here. They do give me hope for improvement and for a first try it was rewarding. Best regards,

KennethD

Hope you dont mind, I played with these a little. They may be a little too light but that first shot really shows what a beautiful bird it is. Julie:-)

Goood work....no, I don't mind at all. In fact, I want to get those into my software and work them a little myself. I hope to be able to shoot a lot more wildlife this fall. Thanks, best regards,

That first shot is very good, Kenneth. You could probably get away with using a bit of sharpening on it - it looks like it will take some sharpening without too much problem.

I like the Panasonic FZ series cameras. The FZ30 is supposed to be very capable but is also supposed to suffer from image noise, probably because of the pixel density on a small sensor. That means you'll have to take extra care to get a well exposed shot as underexposure (and ensuing postprocessing to fix it up) will show the noise even more. Your second shot is a good example of how underexposure accentuates the noise.

Keep at it and you and that FZ30 will take some fantastic shots I'm sure.

Thank you, it feels good to get encouragement from such a talented group! Normcar, I am so impressed with your awesome posts. Amazingly sharp, and beautiful bird, in that the last series, too. It's just that much more fun when I see posts like that here, because it gives me something to aim for. And I know if I fall short, someone in this forum will post a shot that shows me how it can be done, and it keeps me inspired. Best regards,

KennethD
