Very nice Stu, one of your best I think. You retained the details in the whites, great exposure, and sharp. Great work!

I honestly think this is the best chickadee photo I have ever seen!! Everything is perfect, the background, the light, the composition. Great job!

Thank you both! Dan, IYO, do you feel such sharpness comes from the capabilities of the 50D? I could never seem to get really sharp imagery with the 10D. I like the 10, it was a great camera to learn with, but I don't think there's any doubt about the 50D and its ability.

First off I would give much of the credit to the photographer. Good equipment certainly can make your job easier but you still have to make the correct decisions and snap the photo.

The 50D is no doubt helping your cause, more pixels to work with ALO capabilities and honestly some lens/camera combinations work well together. Keep in mind you also have micro focus adjustments available to you as well should you feel you need it.

So yes, equipment helps but I think more credit goes toward the one taking the photo, especially in this case. smile

That is a great image Stu! I agree with Dan that it is one of if not your best that I've seen. Everything about it says wallhanger!

Very nice Stu! Exposure tack on, which isn't easy on chickadee cheeks in sunlight! Good color as well!

What a pose, you caught him or her warming up one foot. The whites are great. I like the 80/20 rule and 80% of that image was the photographer!

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
