I'm new to this forum, and I don't often get the chance shoot wildlife. But several weeks ago the plum tree in our back garden was set upon by these hoodlums. I thought, "What the hell, I may as well take their photograph" . . . . Just in case anyone asked for a description of the offenders. It was a very bright day, so I found it diificult to get the exposure right. ZYou will notice on the first one that the highlights a slightly blown. Are there any thoughts about how to control this?

OHH!! Pretty, pretty, pretty!

As for the highlights, not a major problem with these shots. In post processing cut down a bit on the saturation.

Actually, I don't think I have touched the saturation. I only converted them from RAW, applied¬*levels, crop , unsharp mask and colour balance. The brightness of the birds is pretty much the way they come.Thanks for your comments thoughKeith ¬* ¬*[img]/forums/images/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

Wow, beautiful shots (and a beautiful bird, too). If I had birds like that in my backyard, I'd never leave for work :-)
