Very nice pictures of the birds. I am bit of a plane spotter myself and enjoy the subject matter. www.airliners.net is a great site for fantastic pictures of aircraft (they only select the best for posting). Any problems with security?

The RDU airport (Raleigh-Durham, NC) has an "Observation Park" wih a 30' x 20' observation platform, playground, "conveniences" and speakers with live tower chatter. It is keep very clean. There are no signs forbidding cameras.

Inthis picture you can see that the sun was low in the sky. I shot everything yesterday in handheld multi-shot mode, holding the release down and adjusting the focal length as I panned.

BTW I shot the bird-in-the-tree from that platform in the last light that the telephoto lens would let me work with.

greatshots all.
this lest one of the park i find is very cool as it looks like a cartoon. was it processed that way or is it just natural?
i have a feeling i would not be welcome at d/fw airport handling a camera.

The "cartoon" looking playground picture is a reduction to 20% using Irfanview, one step of sharpeningand then saved at 100% JPeg quality.

Here is a 100% crop at a point of interest with varied detail, no sharpening and saved with 80% JPEG quality. At 80%Q I almost can see a difference compared to the same saved at 100% JPEG Q given the resolutilon is 72x72 dpi for monitor viewing. This correctly shows the quality of the lens for ISO 200,1/90 sec, f6.70 at 100mm (widest angle) [handheld].
