Hi,
I'm posting this photo because I was surpised how sharp it came out. It isn't by far the best from those which I got, but one of the sharpest, and that's why I like it. Atleast one comment would be fine :roll:

Cheers!

First one just resized.

Very nice shot! I have a lot of respect for those of you who can capture birds this close up.I fare much better with slower moving things, like flowers :blah:

* You may see an increase in sharpness by using M, A or S modesinstead of Program mode.

Well, atleast someone has commented on my siskins, now I can die happy :lol: Well I'm really new to photography so this was my first encounter with siskins so I just didn't want to destroy pictures by experimenting with settings. Probably I will try experimentig next time when I'll see them. And actually that day was overcasted, and I was happy to get atleast 1/125 shutterspeed. With higher apertures it probably would be below 1/100 which in my opinion is not fast enough for birds. Ok thanks for your comment suze.

Nice shot. Try 0.5 to 1 pixel of USM and it will be even sharper without destroying the features.

Thanks, Keith. I'll try it when ever I'll get PS or something like that :-)

Paintshop pro demo lasts 60 days - give it a try. Alternatively, experiment with the sharpness settings on the camera.

Great pic(s).

A fine day and some PP would have made that a perfect one...
