Great shots! The first kingfisher shot is unbelievably sharp. You mention these were taken at 500mm, which lens were you using? Nice frames too Toxiq.

These are all outstanding shots as they are. What more would you need to do to the Kingfishers?

Walter,

These are quality shots that we can marvel at the whole day. The 2nd one tops out too. I think someone must have asked. What lens you are using for these tele shots?

Daniel, Toronto

To answer the first question which is asked. I do not think the KF is a sharp picture :sad:I am working on a new PP proces some time and I am sure my LCD is not giving me the colors I want to see. So thats why I will redo some of them with my new PP way.

Those photo's are all shot with the Sigma EX 500mm f4.5 APO lens. Bought it as old stock and I can only say I love the lens!

regards Walter
