Lovely Pics Harj...

I love some of the deep shadow effects with the Highlights in profile it gives a richness to the images ... the image does not need to match the human eye ... rather what you like and wan't to portray.

IT is stressfull

very nice series HarjTT. They are all impressive, but my favorites are 1 (vulture) and 12 (meerkat).. I just find them wonderfully expressive. Excellent job, not to mention it looks like a great day out :-)

John, Suze & Jim

Thanks for the comments - I was really suprised by both the Vulture and Meerkat shots - I was lucky with the Meerkat he just stood up and looked into the distance as if it was day dreaming. What did become apparent when I was out was ergonomic short-cumings of the FZ10 esp the aperture and shutter speed controls - need to do a rapid change of shutter or aperture and all of a sudden you've lost the shoot - esp as I near enough always use the EVF to reduce cam shake. The other thing that got me was also how little sharpening I had to do to the pics.

I think the '30 with the manual zoom, shutter/aparture wheels and the high res VF would be just ideal for photo'in animals esp in decent light be they in the wild or in a zoo.
