This is a black bird with a semi long beak for its size.

I don't have a telephoto lens for my FZ10. In the case of the Heron, I was roughly 7 feet from the bird. Most birds fly away when near humans. This one even took a moment to check me out. I've seen ducks do that, but just about every other bird can't get away from us fast enough.

For Tim vd Velde

"Mine" and "Spreeuw" are two masterpieces IMHO.

I thought you had used a Tele add. lens... instead "only" FZ10.

One curiosity: have you PP the Background or used any sort of Noise Reduction software?
Although ISO 50, the bokeh areas are very clean and I could not obtain them with FZ20 unless heavily resizing (i.e. from 5MP to about 640x480 or few more) or after a good NR processing or (gaussian) blur PP filtering.

Moreover did you shot in burst mode?
I tell you this for with 1/30sec it is not very easy to obtain sharp pics at full tele (I know for there are often sparrows on my balcony, but it looks to the North and it's hard to go beyond 1/40 sec at lower ISO and those guys are very schizoid in movements).

Congratulations again.

Francesco

Good shot Tim! The color black is hard to get good focus. I see you used spot focus. Do you remeber where you focused on? Was any noise cleaning done with this picture?

Mahalo,

Tom


RDV this is a Panasonic forum.. you posted a Canon Powershot 80photo here..

Pardon me Tom. Had them filed together and thought it was a neat shot. Was notan attempt to corrupt the forum. Have a nice day.

I must exchange the compliments you did to me, Nick: great flamingo shot.

Also I like this FZ1 noise in the Out of focus background: it is ordered grain and does not irritate: really it is perhaps better than having a sharp clean digital BG (even if it obviously increases the file size dimension).

Maybe FZ1 has a better compression than FZ20 ?
In the latter a smallissue may be not the noise in itself, but the fact that the jpg compression sometimes creates patterns of compression artifact which ruin the grain diffusion making it somewhat look bad.

That's why it s better to shot with Low sharpening with FZ20 settimgs.
