First time i`ve had these actually in the garden. Usually they feed on the grass verges at the back of the houses outside the gardens.
All taken with tcon-17, full zoom, 200iso,P mode, F4, 1/250th sec. Had to run the images through Neat image to reduce the background noise.1 and 2 are uncropped, 3rd one cropped very slightly.

All three are very nice images with fine detail. I'd be curious to see one without the Neat Image processing to see the difference, if you still have the original....It looks to me that Neat Image was a little too aggressive and there is some loss of detail on the feathers. Don't get me wrong it's not that critical, I'm just curious.

Thanks Hiroshi. Yes, there was a minute amount of feather detail lost due to Neatimage, but probably not as much as you think....here`s the original unfiltered shot of the one most affected....

Thanks for reposting the original, there is definitely some detail loss, but the processed photo looks much cleaner, proving that there is no perfect solution....it's always a matter of trade offs.

Thanks Annie, considering the high ISO I was pleased the way these came out. Glad you liked them.

Love the detail, I do have the collared dove also, but have not been able to capture such detail, what is your secret?

Very nice dove shots. I only had these in the yard once, and it was pre Panasonic camera days. They do take a nice photo.

Hiroshi, what I do quite often with Neat Image is use it as a plug in to Elements, turn the Neat Image sharpening up to between 135 and 190%, and then use one click of Elements Auto-sharpening. I think Neat Image sharpening is very mild.
