Spotted this guy through a gap in the bush he was sitting in. I think it made for
an interesting shot. He did finally hop out in the open.

All shots 20D, 100-400L @ 400, ISO 400, 420EX flash, f/8, 1/250 sec

Wonderful use of my "brown filter" technique. :lol:

Geoff made fun of this, but after seeing these shots, he'll have to eat his words. Do you carry around branchs like I do? Or do you simply make use of the material at hand?

Hah! You probably thought I'd never see this because I've been scarce lately, eh, Dave?

Actually, I can't remember making comments to that effect so I'm not ready to eat my words yet! But, in general I believe a little less brown filtering is beneficial. Nevertheless, woodmeister, I really like the filtering effect achieved in the second shot - very nice!

Maybe I'm confusing you with Jake???

If you look down the page, I've posted the promised "Birdscapes."

I should have put your name in the title...:lol:

Nice captures, Woodmeister. I like the second and third the best. Not to often nature's "filters" make for a nice shot.

Ok, excuse my ignorance but what on earth is brown filtering ?

I'm afraid my sense of humor has now risen to "technical expertise."

I'm simply trying to "dignify" an error I often commit where a piece of brown vegetation obscures the image, "coloring" it brown, of often enough "green."

To avoid admitting a screw up, I now call these brown and green "filters!" :lol:

So, you've missed nothing....

I like #2 the best. It has just the right amount of soft framing. The first one has too much softness and I find the protruding twig in #3 annoying. But #2 - a real winner!

Ohhh!

I've never seen this emoticon:

Where did you get it? It's almost perfect for the majority of my thoughts, not quite as good as this one...
