though some are not great, many surely are, and this is more than an excellent start

to all I'm sorry I'm not used to having to click the WATCH button on the forum you post on haha. I kinda forgot to check up on it from that. For a reply to my editing. Yea I did a quick edit on flickr. I didn't get the photoshop out since it would have taken a bit. And for the RAW question. I did shoot in a raw+jpeg mode. But, for somereason my raw files are comming out so pixelated its rediculous. I think it might be the viewer panasonic sent. But, noise in the raw @ 100iso is like 1000000 iso in jpeg. To narmar. What is PP? you said, " PS a pity that many great shots are not further improved by a minimum of decentPP :-("
I don't understand what you mean a minimum of decent pp?

you mean decent post processing? I just though of that randomly. Yea I know I did my adjustments in the day. I had my monitor on low contrast and brightness since it was too bright at night when I was opening an office document and the whites was killing my eyes. I lowered all my settings and the next day I forgot to set it back. So I OVERSATURATED the pics. I will fix them on my computer and then keep them in my collection as a better processed image

I definitely will, next week I'm going to another place to get some wildlife next week. The following week I'm going to the beach in my hometown with a bunch of rocks for the water to crash over it. Kinda like this

but, instead of using my phone I will use my fz18 so the pics will be awesome. Also I'm taking another topic into the place. A portrait type pic. I am going to be using my girl as my model in a bikini since that is where she seperates from attractive to spectacular as you can see in some pics on my flickr. This should definitely give me some range of photography :-D

2many,

I'm guessing you're in the Vero, Fellsmere, Sebastian area. If I'm right, you're close to one of the best birding areas on Florida's east coast: Merritt Island NWR -- http://www.fws.gov/merrittisland/ -- exit 220 off of I-95 in Titusville.

If you go, you could stop at Viera Wetlands, a man-made facility run by the South Central Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility -- exit 191 off of I-95 in Viera. At the end of the exit ramp, turn west and keep going until the road ends at the treatment plant (a mile or two?). The wetlands are in the back. Stop at the office to get a map.

I've not been to any others mentioned in the following web page but some may be even closer to you: http://www.spacecoastaudubon.org/hotspots.html

I know where hercules71185 took his photos but I'll let him tell you himself. :blah:

Thanks Dick,

I live right on the Indian River South of Titusville, I know the MNWA well, I was just looking for something new. I am planning a trip south in the near future, but I never forget the home ground.
