FZ150 - Still on the farm
Again interesting and expressive close-ups of a goose and a rooster, hand-held and cropped images:

While not knocking your photography I find these extreme close ups a bit daunting, they look as if they are about to attack you! That FZ150 is an awesome machine.

great detail as always mate. the 1st and 4th are my favorite. the fine detail on the male chicken (resisting the need to call it by the correct male term) is impressive. and they said that the newer fz's couldnt shoot fur or feathers. well done for proving the critics wrong! great shots

what shutter speed were you using? ive been doing some zoomed indoor shots and found good results with 1/60 using flash in lower light to bring the brightness up.the shots are nice and sharp but getting a little too much shadow. photgraphing my 9 week old baby tho not chickens lol

Superlative close-ups catalex54.You are a close-up wizard and probably you can do it with almost any given camera,let alone the FZ150 ! :)
