Fly by!

These birds don't miss a thing. It was interesting how they watched a hawk fly by.

Yep, way too busy. I just spent the last couple hours going thru the rest of my shots from Yesterday. When you have dozens that you like, it's tough deciding which ones to keep. If nothing else, it makes a person much more particlular with his shots. After awhile, you learn to pick out minute differences in similar shots. It was an enjoyable shoot, but I've had enough of whoopers for awhile.

It's amazing what kind of eyesight these guys have! The anecdote really adds to the photo!

I just discovered that when I upload to Flickr and then add a frame in Flickr, and then resave it 800 X ***, I lose a little sharpness. I think I'll skip the frame in the future or find one elsewhere and frame the photo before uploading.

At least after this last batch, I can delete most of the others that show the leg bands. grin

Mike those are noticably sharper! I would ditch the frames as well, they were showing some pixelation. These look tack sharp.

Thanks, Dan. I really appreciate the feedback. At least now, I know it's not just me.

Ahhh, and here I was wondering if there was a lens issue! These have excellent sharpness!

In the future, if my shots don't look real sharp, please let me know. I can't fix something if I'm not aware that it's broke. wink You won't hurt my feelings. I never mind constructive criticism. I thought the problem was my new laptop. I process them on my desktop, but use my laptop for everything else. I assumed the monitor on my laptop was that bad.

Mike, you know we don't critique on this board unless you ask for it. You never know whose feelings are going to be hurt. smile

I don't have any feelings. grin But yeah, I understand. In the future, do not worry about my feelings. This goes for you and Dan and any other experienced photographer on this forum.

I'll let you know when I've had enough. wink

Well in that case......

Just kidding X! These shots are really great. Glad you got that figured out. To tell you the truth, I didn't notice anything that was terrible but I don't always notice sharpness in someone elses work unless it really stands out either way.

Thanks for sharing these Whoopers. They have been fun to see. I saw a program on PBS last year about them in Wisconsin and they were very interesting.
