Woah,
I love these. Maybe I look at them knowing you took these with that special lens (which is because of it's construction a no-go for some people for everything but astro-shots). Colors are quite nice and I like the poses of the lil' birds.

Great! You should definitely use that lens more often!

I am tempted to see what Topaz denoise can do with them... I am testing it at the moment and so far it's one of the few denoise programs I really like. I guess I'll have a go and let you know about the outcome.

Hello bigdawg. Just browsing different threads, i'm new on here and i'm not trying to be disrespectful but are the first two birds actually in focus or slightly off?? Just wondering 'cause it has been a long time since my eyesight was checked.

Again no disrespect meant.

Just a lil' touchup to say so...

Dawg, you definitely got a great lens here, bokeh might be a killer in some situations, but the details are fine and the color rendering is surprisingly good. I never thought such a lens would be able to do that kind of stuff. Amazing. Thanks for sharing them.

Regards,
Th.
