    Raven you are making me want to go out and chase waterfowl with my 70-300. I guess it is good that it is too dark out to follow up on the urge;-)

    Don, is your door double pane glass? Mine always seems to soften the subject a little. At first I thought it was just that the 70-300 was not the best, but a few shots with the door open and it was obvious that the glass was my issue. It doesn't help that I need to use a pretty shallow angle through the door to see my feeder.

    Yeah, double pane, a broken seal, sunlight at 2 o'clock. And I'm a smoker

    Turned out pretty good considering, eh?

    Edit - Don't mean to sound like a smart ass, just real happy with the results pushing the limits that far.

    Cheers, Don

    Hello Don,

    I, too have been testing the onboard flash recently (of course that's the only option for me). I have discovered that it works best with the 25mm pancake and 40-150mm at 40mm, at least of the lenses I have. It often can be used for fill flash with the others, but I have to arrange it carefully so the lens shadow looks like part of the ordinary scene. I guess you were using the 50mm f/2?

    Yeah, the 50. Up till now I've rarely used it outside of the studio.

    Hopefully with a second camera I'll be more inclined to take it with me on my normal travels.

    I could tell for two reasons: first, of the lenses you have that would be the only one with no shadow. Second, of course, is the shallow depth of field.

    Time to air out the ol' bed sheets (all 10,000). At 9mm, f/8.

    By the way, if you have any comments, suggestions, or improvements for this shot I'd like to hear them (I will probably have a chance at it again).

    Raven it's nice & colourfull but somehow it's not very interesting. How about trying to raise your shooting point up a bit if that's possible to spread out the washing over more of the image? Just a thought.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them
