Great shots, zoomn. I'd like to see more yellow headed myself but I've only seen one this year so far. I like the top slightly unorthodox position that you got and the flash seems okay on these as they provide only a subtle enhancement to the feathers rather than a radical change.

I like the 2nd one. The grain on D70 shots is great. On canon's you don't get that. BTW - The 2nd seems bit oversharpened on my LCD monitor.

Hi Bobbyz,

Thanks for taking a look.

Just because I can't tell. I am wondering how you determine that a photo looks oversharpened. I usually sharpen till the eye looks right to me, and I don't see any halo's. That is what I did on the second photo and it doesn't look oversharpened to me.

Since the photo looks oversharpened to you I am wondering what aspect of the photo is leading you to that conclusion.

I am just wondering what factors you look for to tell you that a photo is oversharpened to increase my own knowledge.

Thanks

I think it's "close" to being oversharpened.

Compare the interface of the bird and the background. When there is an actual "line" distinction between the two, it's oversharpened.

Compare the two images, on the first there is no line, the second, sort of has one - it's borderline...:roll:

Zoomn, when I looked at the picture on my 21" LCD at home, I could clearly see it was oversharpened. I didn't see any halos but the feather detail was showing it. Now at work on my 15" laptop screen, I don't see much. Maybe it was higher resolution screen which showed the effects.

I take it back, I am seeing halos on my laptop screen. Along the feet & his tail. What USM setting you used?
