After about 25 missed shots, I finally got what I think is a decent pic of one of our local Red Tail Hawks....

All I did was set the saturation to high, crop, and sharpen the overall photo a bit.

Guess it's not a huge accomplishment to those who are lucky enough to get photos like this on a daily basis but, for me, I'm pretty happy with it and my FZ20 :-)

Very nice, I'd be pretty happy with that one too.

Good shot. Been trying to get a Hawk myself but no luck yet.

Thanks...

You'll have to visit the N.E. Scottsdale area of Arizona...there are always 2-3 soaring around my house along with some pretty large turkey buzzards.

Know what you mean about failed attempts....seems like everyone I tried that was above me came out unfocused,
doesn't seem to make much sense but, when this one flew buy under my vantage point....it worked.

Life is good.... :-)

Hey Vince,

Good shot-. You must have some vantage point. A very beautifully colored hawk for sure. I see some wildflowers in the background-do you have any of those pics yet? Hint hint!!

Happy :|,

This a very good shot but there is quite a bit of jpeg artifacts due to either the aggressive sharpening and/or what you used to resize this picture.

Thanks Norma...howz things in MI? Ok...here's a shot I got today of some wildflowers for you. May not look like much to most folks but, from my neck of the woods...what normally looks brown, burnt and dead, now has some color. (:


vIZnquest:
The program I used to crop, sharpen and resize was an old
program I have had for years called LViewpro32.

I know it leaves a lot to be desired and I will be getting Photoshop shortly. I have the original so I will try to improve on it once I figure out how to use Photoshop. (:

Picasa2 is free and easy to use. Does a pretty good job on cropping and resizing for the web.

I agree you need a new program to resize with and Picasa2 I sa good free one for right now. Also try to limit the size to 720x540so it'll fit better when viewed.
