    in that case, get a macro lens cos you will be a MASTER.

    Thanks! I hope so. Until I get my dream Tammy 90mm, I'm considering getting the Raynox 2.5x macro converter. I've seen some great results, considering it's only 40 bucks. But I haven't gotten any info about how it performs on a DSLR.

    finally !

    the rain let up for a while.

    like an idiot i left it on iso800 from some earleir photos. and i had the TC on when the little sucker was perched just metres from me and he sat there for a while and let me rattle off some quick photos before he took off again. not time to adjust much or take the TC off.

    still i gotta be a bit happy, the first bird photo i've ever taken that worked out !

    Great shots there Rooz, vibrant colour and sharpness. Looks like that TC doesn't affect the sharpness much.
    Just had a look at your site aparmley, i found the softbox link tutorial handy so i'll try it out tomorrow on my SB600. I've tried using a silver car windscreen reflector from 24Peter's suggestion, and a white bedsheet but that's so much trouble to set up. I'll see how this softbox goes, it seems much easier to work with.

    Nice ones, Rooz. I don't think the high ISO did too badly - let you use a good fast shutter speed, so you were better able to handle subject movement.

    With my D40 I tend to leave it on ISO 200 unless I'm going low-light, and then, unless it's really moderately bright, I usually go to 1600. I'm definitely the sort for a fast lens - we'll see when I can get around to that.

    All I did was this:

    covereted the image to black and white in lightroom - pretty standard stuff. Then once in photoshop you:

    1. Copy the background layer into a new layer
    2. apply Filter>Other>High pass with these settings: 28.0
    3. Change layer blending option to "Overlay"
    4. Flatten the image
    5. Copy the background layer into a new layer
    6. apply filiter>other>High Pass with these settings: 4.9
    7. Change the layer blending option to vivid light
    8. drop this layers opactiy to 20%
    9. Flatten the image
    10. sharpen with unsharpen mask with these settings: 50/15/6

    Voila!

    I found this today while looking around on my external hard drive. I took this about two months ago and then forgot about it. I pulled it out and cleaned it up. This was at a historical site in my local town in BFE, SC (USA). I was actually trying to take a photo of the inside of this structure but got this effect instead.

    Camera: Nikon D70s
    Exposure: 0.1 sec (1/10)
    Aperture: f/3.5
    Focal Length: 18 mm
    Exposure Bias: 1/3 EV


    BTW, VR is awesome
