Very neat pics of the dove. I have never seen this before, even in photographs.

Mark,

I must be getting blinder because I cannot see huge difference between the Neat Image version and the non. At any rate these are fine shots.

Nice shots Mark, you must have been able to get pretty close to it not to have to crop the pictures. I too use Neat Image and I find the results are mixed although most of the time the images are improved. At times I have had images that appeared sharper after using Neat Image then they did before.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Usually its rare I need to run images through Neatimage, but of the few I do its pretty rare to lose detail due to the program. This was just one of those rare exceptions. I think it usually improves more images than it spoils, detail-wise.
Bayourebel, whenever I shoot bird pics I always use infinite burst mode, and shoot maybe 20 images at a time, not only does it give more chance of getting a nice sharp shot its also good at capturing the pose u want from the subject if you just keep firing. Also to get good detail the closer you are to the subject the better, these were maybe 15ft from me as i shot through the kitchen window, and filled the frame with the tcon-17 on the camera.

Hmm. 20 at a time. Then I assume you refocus and try again? I only used infinite burst mode once. I used up most of a memory card waiting for a hawk to fly off of a grave stone, only to find out it was not focused properly for the first (focus determining) shot. I was so steamed I never tried it again. Maybe trying 20 at a time would work better.

I`ve done the same thing Happy, frustrating isn`t it? :roll:

I prefer to shoot several sets of bursts rather than just keep continually shooting and pray i get a few keepable shots.I do try and ensure focus is locked on the right target before I commence shooting though.
