I kind of liked this shot of the Titmouse because it is adifferent pose than most I have shot. I just thought that being totally horizontal on the limb was neat.

Beautiful pose, Keith !!

For what it's worth, Keith, I have found a little bit of assistance from the burn tool when a bird or animal's eye seems a little "Whitened" - Using the shadows or midtones drop down can give you the darkness without removing the shine.

Thanks very much for the frame link, it did work, and is a great framing action !!

Thanks Boily and Jake for the fine comments.

Jake: Thanks for the reminder of the adjustments,, should have used that a tad here.

Glad the link worked to the action, it is kind of neat and you can go into the different steps of the action and make changes to fit your personal needs. All the best:-)

Hey VP,

I have a few different cameras (point & shoot and Canon DSLR). I am a camera nut.. This Titmouse shot was made with a Panasonic FZ30 at the 5MP extended zoom (15X), F3.7, 1/60 with IS, ISO80, at a 35MMlens equivalent of 535MM.... At the 8MP settings (RAW & JPG) the range is 35-432MM..

The FZ30 handled that shot very well. Had thought about making the purchase of one even after getting my 30D,but have pretty much decided to put the cost into more glass. I have the FZ20 and it has seena fair bit of use and still going.

I think that is a very wise choice ,, since you have the FZ20 (less noise)....
