All good shots, but I really like the Robin.

You have made great use of the 50-200 lens! I especially like the Iris and the Robin. Did you do much PP?

All I did was tweak the levels in PS CS. The Pentax K100D seems to give good results in jpg. I don't use the K100Ddefault saturation, however, as it seems to be a little oversaturated for my taste. I thing the DA50-200mm gvies better color and sharpeness results than my 18-55 kit lens. Any suggestions for a lens in the 18-55mm range that gives better results would be appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback.

Lovely series - your DA 50-200is much better than mine is. I like the color and sharpness of my copy of the kit lens better. Interesting how a slight difference in lens quality can make a big difference in your pictures. Your robin is outstanding.

P.S. - My spelling goes downhill when I'm trying to watch the Stanley Cup Finals...

Ouch, your comment about the Stanley Cup Finals hurts. My Sabers managed to "duck" out of the competition.

The robins in my yard are very cooperative. There is a family, mom and two chicks that have been hanging out for the past week. You can get within 10 feet of them before they get skiddish. They seems to follow me when I cultivate my flower beds, it makes it easier for them to get the worms.

Thanks all for your comments.

LOL! Sorry about the Sabres - they are a good team. I'm a long time Kings fan (used to have season seats) and am now rather reluctantly rooting for the Ducks. It's been an interesting series.
