Yes Darren they are Magpies and Saly they were quite far a way at the very top of a Sycamor tree. Very few birds around at the moment due to the cold weather.
I am looking forward to getting out soon to take some art photos so i will post.

Those are good shots. Personally I much prefer the originals. Clint's attempts to improve the flower shot were OK in terms of its contrast and saturation but it caused all the bright spots of the leaves to look over exposed. They lost the details one can see on the original shot. The sharpened version looks a bit too sharp and way over exposed for my taste.

The light pink Carnation is OOF. This could be caused by the distance between the lens and the subject being too short and/or lack of light forcing the shutter speed down too much. How do you have the focus setup on the camera? I tend to use single center point. That way, I always know exactly where the camera will focus. I don't know about your camera but I have a FZ28 and one of its AF modes is called H AF (high speed auto focus). I find this mode to be fast but inaccurate so make sure you're not using it.

Thanks Tullio, i am set to centre point too and my camera is the FZ38. What is OOF? (out of focus at a guess?) Don't have high speed focus on the 38.
Still lots to learn Tullio so i appreciate all comments.

You guessed it right. OOF = Out Of Focus.
