The first two are with flash as the bird was back in the shadow.

The third is in the bright sun just at daybreak.

I love the last one in natural light. Rich and natural, great shot. I have a bit of trouble with the flash shots, zoomn, but that's a matter of subjective taste and not a matter of technique. However, you might attempt to clone out the double catch-light in the bird's eyes.

I like all these but you can't beat golden light at the dawn time. Personally I think the flash could use some -ve compensation in the first 2 shots.

Thanks for taking a look and commenting. Glad you enjoyed the photos.

Bobby what is -ve compensation with regard to the flash shots?

I know what you mean Normcar. I prefer the natural light shots cause they look natural. I really enjoy fooling around with the flash. I really want to perfect the combo natural light and fill flash technique. I think getting themix rightis going to be a steep learning curve but it is one I have embarked upon. I need to find someone in my area who has already mastered this art of nature photography and see if I can get him to teach me.

Thanks bmullen I have been having a lot of fun trying to learn how to learn how to use the flash in nature shots without it looking overdone. Still have a lot to learn.

Zoomn, I was referring to flash compensation. You can dial in some -ve compensation to reduce flash output. BTW - Do you use better beamer with your setup. It is nice to have.

Some nice shots here zoom. My favorite is the last shot as well. There's
just something about the warmth of the early morning or late evening sun
that adds a pleasing effect to photos.
