Zoom, great pic of the jay. I've never seen one like that. The lighting and background of the squirrel are really neat, too. Thanks for posting.

Hi zoomn, the bottom shot seems very dark on my monitor and the Jay's head area is similar. I'm not sure if it's your photo or my monitor so I'll leave it at that. None of your previous photos have this problem so perhaps another few visitors might comment on this in order to ensure that it isn't just from my end. The Jay's body looks great, nice and sharp too, but I can't see the head very well.

Hi Zoomn. The squirrel looks nice and sharp although it is a little dark and the Jay has beautiful color and sharpness but the head is too dark to tell anything about it.

Right on. The Stellar would not sit in the sun so this is the best shot I got of him. Half sun half shade.

The squirrel I darkened up because I generally like a darker look than most folks.

Thanks for taking a look!

Hope you don't mind, Zoomn. Here's the jay with a little lightening of the shadow areas.

That brought the detail in the shadows pretty well. I think the overall bird is quite a bit too bright but you can sure see the head a lot better.

Feel free to fool with my photos anytime you like. Thanks.
