Thanks, Ronny. I realized nr 1 was a bit dark. I spot metered off the bird and that drew the exposure down some. I lightened it in Elements but obviously not enough. I tried to not lose any detail on the bird.

If I could, I'd like to threadjack my own thread and ask you, Ronny, how you like your Sigma 10-20mm. I'd really like to see an example of it's sharpness. Thanks in advance.

I like the first one just as it is - smart move metering off the bird. I've tried to shoot egrets a couple of times and have always ended up with a white blob of blown highlights. You might be able to lighten it a bit more but not much. I do think your 4th one is my favorite, though.

Hey Dennis, if you ever feel like getting together some weekend for a day of shooting, give me a shout.

Thanks, Harriet. I might've gotten carried away with the saturation or something?

GW, I'm sure we could come up with some plan for an impromptu shoot?

Nice shots, Dennis. I like them all. But, especially the second one where you can't quickly tell which way the bird is flying. Until you look at the direction of the wings:-)

Thanks Don and Patty for taking the time to look and comment. He could definitely be flying either direction!
