Took this today of an eagle flying off and then one of the bird in the sky.

FA* 300mm, ISO 400, 1/4000 sec, f/4.5, spot meter and MF because the branches were between me and the bird (which you can see in the first photo) and I needed to stay locked on the eagle.

About 30 yards from a 60' tree!

They have the same detail in 12"x18" prints, so that works for me. There is no color adjustment on any of these, just croping for posting, which is why I don't use RAW that much, and I don't see that much sharper of an image in RAW compared to a jpg shot with a good lens.

tom,
i'm talking about the images here, not your originals. i'm sure the originals have quite a bit more detail. it's like my herons. the originals have a lot more shadow detail as in the white wings. the originals have individual feathers visible. of course i saved them at a lot smaller file than the eagle shots.

I know the images that are posted loose so much detail, but they would never load if they were put up in full resolution.

What impresses me most is the perfect level of sharpness, too often shots posted here are either a little soft or show marked effects of sharpening, but these are just about perfect. What settings do you use for sharpness, contrast and saturation in your DS. (No I am dot discounting the fact that you are using a fantastic lens as well).

Tom, you never fail to impress, the worst images I have seen you post here are merely fantastic, these go beyond that.

BTW the only wildlife pictures I have were taken with film or my Fuji S7000 so I cannot really post them here (great excuse to avoid embarrassment hey?)
