    Nesting Magpie Robin

    sharpening set to soft (I find it's normal just fine though).
    Had to adjust the EV cause the Fuji burned out a lot of the highlights in the tree bark and the bird's feathers. Also I find the colors kinda dull. Last pic with digital zoom.

    The little bird's nesting inside the bottom hole, there's a pair of them, when one's inside the hole, the other usually sits at the top of this dead tree.

    As you can probably tell from the blades of grass, this little guy was only an inch from wingtip to wingtip. He posed well for this macro though.

    Well the darkness isn't too bad but the reflection really kills the shot.

    Lightning

    Last night was stormy here in Belgrade. There was no rain and no thunder but you could catch some nice lightning bolts:



    ISO 100
    F 3.7
    8 sec
    Manual focus

    The problem with such shot is that after 8 seconds hot pixels become visible and there are quite a lot of them. I had to do a lot of post-processing which probably killed some fine detail.

    What I did was NeatImage->Crop(1600x1200)->Dust&Scratches(1px)->UnsharpMask(0.5px,500%)->AutoLevels.

    Note that I still don't have a tripod and I had to improvise. I used one of my column speakers and a cardboard box on top of it. Considering all the obstacles I am impressed how well it turned out.

    One way to eliminate hot pixels is take a picture with the lens cap on your lens (use a shorter exposure for this). This gives you a black image with only hot pixels. In photoshop you can add this as a layer and set it to substract (or another mode, can't remember which one).
