Nice shots Robert! That last shot is showing some great detail. What camera are you using on the end of the scope?

Some CC: I notice a gold tone to most of your shots. Not that this is a bad thing as it may be because your shooting in that "golden hour" just before sunset or after sunrise. If not, thena tweak of your white balance setting could provide a lessgold tone to the images. You'realso "slightly" overexposing some of the highlights in the images which can be taken care of with a - adjustment to the camera's exposure compensation setting. Don't get me wrong here, these are great as is, I just want to add some inputsthat may improve your technique.

Hi Kem most of my shots are in the morning or evening they seem to come out better as I`m sure you already know . I`m useing the canon A95 with the cloud setting which seem to give a yellow tint at times. I actually prefere that look. Just a personal preferance.:G

Since we all like to help each other improve, you must know I agree with KEM 100%. I'm not sure about what settings your using but it wouldn't hurt to do -0.3 or -0.6 on exposure compensation (EV) I also have a high end calibrated computer monitor and there is a fair amount of "noise" in your pics that could be from higher ISO or oversharpening images that were shot in not the best lighting environments. Remember, we are all here to help and hope you feel comfortable being open minded and sharing your photo's with all of us. :-)

oops, I forgot one other small CC, pictures with branches and grass in front of them kind of distract the eye and take away from the beauty of the subject, that is unless it's Bigfoot. :-)
