Excellent choice of selective focus Wil !!!. Bang on where it should be, impressive in-fact. Nice work M8t . Have to love the natural colours and that gorgeous eye detail my friend. :|

Lovely pic, Willow. Raptors are noble, beautiful, and interesting birds -- you've certainly done this one justice!

Will

Agree with DAnny and the rest of guys and gals - a lovely shot esp with just the good old 12x, spot on shot and its tack sharp.

Cheers

Harj

Hi wILLOw, those are super and darn hard to come buy shots with a FZ20. Very Sharp.

Do you, HarjTTor Danny have much luck with manual focus on shots like this. I never did with the FZ? I could only get near sharp focus letting the camera work off spot auto focus.

Manual worked fine with close-ups, but thats about it. Tazz


Isee in your post N0. 2 you mention manual spot. Hmmmmmm.

I think I'll sell the FZ20 and not wonder about it anymore.

That was Manual focus and Spot metering.....

AND BY THE WAY i TOOK SUM 20 OR SO SHOTS !!!!

and reaped 3 or 4 good ones....

and I stated I used "NOISEWARE" which is a standalone program for removing noise...works great

after all is said and done, its the light metering dilemma that I dislike about the camera....Thats why I take lots of shots andhope I get lucky.....
