Tried a pigeon with the borrowed 70-300mm. Quite soft results closer to 200mm and above. That wire in the rear is a distraction, was lazy to patch it in PS.

Well, I was feeding them seeded (brown) bread
Thats what we eat and is full of 5-6 different types of seeds and the robin seems to like it.

Is that wrong? Why?

@mail4ajo: Nice shot but needs a touch of photoshop, IMO, due to the visible softness in the picture and too much "other stuff" in the frame. Full bird would be nice or just neck onwards.

As i said just my opinion.

Cheers

Allepey (spell check) evening. Nothing much about this shot but I just like the feel.

I used to love looking at these when I was in Ohio. So intricate.
I looked at your picture,and immediately knew what it was.(sigh),been over 3 years since I experienced the winters..

Super shot!

How did you time it? Or was this a multi-shot?

What are the artifacts in fore(most)ground in the centerline of the pic?

Default oh boy..

hey guy,

fabulous shot dude, i'm assuming the artefacts in the foreground is due to some sort of lighting you have in front of the splash??

here are some pics i shot of a rather furious waterfall, smack bang in the middle of the monsoons, hence the chocolate brown colour!

enjoy (hopefully)!!

Interesting shots. The first shot is little over-exposed, especially the broccoli. Close up flash is the culprit I suppose.
