Very nice Houston, I like the last 2 the best.

BTW- Did you increase saturation on these? I just calibrated my LCD monitor and colors look richer than what I would have expected.

The first one is one of the most beautiful bird photos I've seen yet. The contrast in colours and the beauty of the simplicity is outstanding.

Thanks Bobbyz. And no I didn't do anything with the colors on any of these. Just the normal things of resizing and some of them might have had just a little work in levels. And I use a program called Focus Magic most of the time instead of USM. It was suggested to me by Lin Evans and I like it pretty well.

Hi Houston - yup, you've reached the level of the "untouchables" [just joking]

however, as mentioned

Jake and Woody, To say that my work has leaped up is probably not as accurate as saying the IS lens really gave me a boost. Yes Woody IS is great. And thanks for noticing. I really appreciate it.
