From a (very) untrained eye, great pictures, Mel. I especially like the ones of the eagles. I've got a soft spot for eagles, as I work on the West Coast of Canada where they're fairly common. It's not unusual to come in from working on the water (I'm in the Navy), and find them taking a break on our jetty. This guy was caught from about 40 ft away with my 5100 on auto.

Great photos, and the images are really sharp and clear. I have a fuji s5100 and my shots are even close to yours in quality. Would you mind tellingme/us what setting you use beside the ones you have already given. I'mwondering if my mediocre shots are me or the camera!

Thanks! Bill

Thanks for the feedback bill. The zoo shots were in program mode (P on the camerea). This mode is basically automatic. The only thing I changed using this mode is the ISO setting and the exposure compensation.

The "guy on a lake" shot was in fully manual mode (except I used Auto focus). I changed the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO setting to get the right reading on the light meter and have a fast enough shutter time to not have camera shake at full telephoto.

I'm new to photography and for the must part these shots were in automatic mode.

I do use ISO 200-400 for shade and ISO 64-100 for sunlight most of the time. I do notice the colors are more dull at ISO 400.

Are you sure it is not motion blurr? I have a S5100 and haven't had problems, and I have taken many telephoto at full zoom and with TCON-17 hand held.
