Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything, but just yesterday I took a batch of photos that I really wanted to share. I posted them up in the wildlife section:

Here's a couple of the shots I posted:













They were all shot with the K100D, using a manual focus Sears 80-200 f/4.

After doing my best with a 210 mm lens in SA, I really appreciate your achievements with a 200mm. Good to hear from you, as you said it's been a while.

Nice Shots. I have tried rather Unsuccessfully to photograph my birds. I have two feeders and always have some birds around. I have much Better luck Shooting Race cars and planes.

I hope you dont mind, but i ran one of your pictures thru Neat image so you could see the difference noise reduction can make

Thanks for the comments.

Black Knight, I appreciate the work you did there. I actually ran all the images through Noise Ninja, but because I was processing so many I didn't spend a lot of time on them all. Also, it looks like I should have done the noise removal AFTER resizing them down rather than before. Now I'll know for next time.

Thanks.

Interesting about doing noise reduction after rather than before resizing. I've always done it first, while the file still has as much information/detail as possible (I use Neat Image and use auto profile as much as possible, so I want as many pixels as I can get. Maybe I should try it both ways and see which one is better?

i use NN and usually do it first. not sure about NI but NN has a brush that lets you mask off the subject so it's not affected by the noise loss..

happy turkey day, guys and gals,
