After sometime spending on learning the strange metering system of the FZ-10, I guess I am getting to used to it. Currently, I use spot meter exclusively. Here are some shots that I took in the past two days. They were taken with either a TCON-14B or a TL-55, shapren:low, saturation:std, ISO 50, aperture F2.8 or F4. The images were cropped near the center. Then, resizing to 400x300 and perhaps a little level, followed by NeatImage with default settings, and a slight USM with PS7.

This is a woodpecker commonly seen in my area, taken with TCON-14B:

The following two were taken with Canon TL-55:

I suspect the second one is a pine siskin; but, I am not sure about that.

Note that more PS actions can be taken to remove distracting portions in the images. I did not try it because I simply wish to show the capability of the FZ-10 plus TCON-14B or TL-55. Once I can master the FZ-10, especially its metering system, I am sure my backyard birding shots would be much better.

Shene, nice sharp images that demonstrate the capabilities of the FZ10 coupled with your converter.

Excellent hat trick, Shene.

Detail, clarity and composition all exception.

No worries about the "no edit out" approach you took!
