I just tried sharpening your picture in Irfanview and it seemed a lot better. Just two mouse clicks!

@rj Since I don't have access to the original pics right now (am in office), I will have to give figure from my memory. I was surely very close, in fact may be less than 10 meters (since I was not able to get the complete bloomage of the peacock). I was using my Tamron 70-300 lens (non IS). Problem was that I was on a long moving vehicle (like a toy train on road) and was not allowed to get down, plus it was cloudy (and all this added to the blureness in the pic).

The only advantage was that I shot this pic in RAW. That brings me to another question. While I was editing the peacock pic using Cannon's digital photo professional (I am not sure abt the software's name) , I increased the sharpness a lot. The resulting picture was crisp but without any noise. Then I exported the picture into 8 bit TIFF (350dpi) and still in the cannon's software window, the pic looked crisp and without noise. However when I opened the picture using other softwares (picasa, paint etc), there was so much noise and I ended up softening the picture to remove noise. Can anyone point me what was I doing wrong?

Even I face the same problem, it's coming with a red tint. I used just a single raw file and Dynamic HDR instead, what could be wrong? Sorry for the OT, could use some help here.

I was really amazed by this. One humming bird feeding the other with nectar gathered a while back. The 70-200 was used for clicking these.

TG.
TG,
You and Rudra Sen are living legends in Hyderabad BHPians. Like Pulsar rightly put it in his words.
The humming birds pic is superb not only for the action caught but also for the composition and monotone acheived.

I had a CP filter on which I think messed up the lighting on the shots.
