    I took this today from my frontyard.

    I took this using a tripod. It looks a little fuzzy. This is the best one I got out of 17. I used the Vivid setting with a CPL filter on my 28-200mm Nikkor lense. FL 200mm, ISO 200, SS 1/25s, f/11.

    How do you think it looks?

    ssil, good to see you back. I'm not usually a fan of selective color, but this one is pretty nice I see a lot of magenta in the b&w conversion though, and a lot of cyan in the whites of his eyes. What do you think of this one? If you don't like it, I'll take it down straightaway.

    Tomcat, I'm jealous that you live in such a beautiful location! We don't have that many trees in our whole county! I think what you're seeing here isn't actually softness (i.e. a lack of sharpness) but an effect of the color and direction of the light. There's not much contrast. You could try shooting at around 2:00 p.m., you might get a more contrasty version that you'd like better. Something else to check, if the image actually is soft, you can try using the self-timer feature on the camera or using a remote. As long as it's not a windy day, that would eliminate any camera shake. Also make sure your aperture is no larger than f/8 (i.e. use apertures from f/8 to f/16,) and that you're focusing into the trees.

    gsusmaniac, that looks like a very nice place to be! Did you combine shots for a panorama? Good for you, that can be a pain sometimes The 18mm focal length introduced a lot of distortion. Some of the best advice I received about panos (on this forum, of course!) was to 1. shoot in portrait orientation (so you will have more shots) and 2. Keep as close to 50mm focal length as you can. Your panoramas will probably look more natural. hth

    rawpaw, that's a great shot! Tell me how did you keep those whites from blowing out???

    superb portrait. i like the high key but i dont particualrly like the selective eye colour. (just personal tasts). i'd like to see a desat version of a colour one. regardless, the hi-key look is fantastic.

    Thanks for the compliments....and Toriaj, thanks for the advice- I didn't know that!

    And Rooz... Amazing shots of the wasp! I never thought of shooting one, I am usually smashing them before they get a chance to move!
