Hi !

When I first loaded this image into rawshooter it was lacking detail and sharpness. Fortunately I had already read on here to expect this and with very little effort I was suprised how well adjustments in a raw convertor can lift the image!. It's my first real attempt at wildlife after years of landscapes. It was taken with a 70-300mm Sigma at the 300mm end, f5.6 1/750sec at ISO 200

Comments good or bad please.

Looks good to me - with all the results people post for rawshooter, I'd definitely get it. As it is, I have CS2 and get confused when I try anything else (been using photoshop for too long). You definitely seem to have a handle on it.

Great shot and great camera too.
Nonetheless, try out your lens not at the extreme end (300). Say 150-200mm. See if it is sharper. My hunch is that it should be. With raw, you can sharpen the image a bit but there is a limit as to what you can do.

I still think the shot is fine and if you moved up the brightness and mid range contrast just a bit it would't be quite so flat looking. Hope you don't mind this example, but it doesn't take much to bring the image of the duck out from the water.
