Just got a B-300 lens and took these this morning. It was overcast with no sun. Any advice on using a converter? There was quite a bit of noise at full zoom. Shot was resized then cropped and resized. I know good light would make better pic. but don't get to see whitetails like these everyday.

these have a sort of painted, surreal quality... perhaps the noise reduction software kinda cleaned up some of the fine detail along with the noise? like the deer's coat... looks like velvet,notexturelike you'd normally seein the coarse hair or the grass... and it seems a little bright, especially in the foreground. other than that, great shots, though. how far were you from the deer?

Thanks Willow. The lens is an Olympus B-300 H.Q. converter 1.7X.

Hi squirl...........This one is cropped and resized and no filtering. It still has that velvet look and no fine detail. This is a new hobby for me complete novice. It may be out of focus or I have the camera set up wrong. I'll improve as I learn. I was about 60 to 70 yards away from the deer.

I looked at a download and it appears out of focus. Try spot focus.:arrow:

They're rather overexposed/bright.

I think you should make use of the histogram.

... actually, I would argue that it is completely amazing that you could take an intelligible image at all. I assume these were hand-held shots at 10 to 12X with a 1.7 converter lens? That's a g-darn telescope! The skys were overcast too? Perfect, no. But still pretty amazing! If these weren't taken using a tripod, the little bit of softness is due to motion blur. You could never even attempt a shot like this with most cameras out there.
