Hi All,

Thanks everyone for taking a look, and for the comments.

I said a bit soft -- Hmmm maybe a little "new lens overcritical" -- I'm sure I'll get over it!! :-)

I'm surprised at the response to #2 -- I originally was going to post two of these "splash shots", but decided that one would be enough -- maybe I need to follow my first intuition more. . .

Excellent sequence.

Put the 3 together in one frame - brilliant story.

We have a lot more subject in Toronto (blue jay) than your area . Proportionally I have more keepers. But none of them matches your cool shots part the 3 rd one .

The 2nd one is cool only in the context of a series. It cannot exist by itself . Unless it is part of a story line.

I would say all three are not soft. They are likely 1/2 ev under. Nonetheless they are engaging and interesting which is what counts. Who cares?

Hi Darren, Roy, and Daniel,

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

Darren and Roy -- both good suggestions, maybe when I have some extra time. . .

Daniel -- The underexposure was actually on purpose -- I'd been getting a lot of hot spots with other shots at this location, so I dialed in -.7 Ev compensation to eliminate them as they were really distracting. Luckily, I was still able to get some good images in spite of this when the sun went behind some clouds as the Jay showed up. -- got lucky. . .
