    Elisha hte first series has way too much noise ninjaing, quite a loss of detail. The female is very natural looking (furry) .

    Also, if you do use USM, you should always fade it. I think in photoshop, it's in the edit menu. edit > fade mask or something.

    Continuing the squirrel theme, an older shot

    O.k. guys nice squirrels! now I got to go check out the buggers in my back yard! And yes the black ones are different, they will 'move in' and kick out the grays, they will also 'raid' the grays stockpiles. way to much animal planet watching!

    Red face Plant your tulips ...

    Among my wanderings at the zoo, they went and planted several hundred tulips in the walkway boulevards ... so I settled in and did a shallow DOF of them ... and through HDR, attempted to catch the very spring-like color they had. I was not trying to capture any one flower, but just the feeling looking across them all had on me. The prior days of rain beat them up a bit. Go ahead, call it a "wild hair!"

    @ 200mm - f/2.8 - 1/500 sec. - Spot Focus - M - Bright, but cloudy - HDR

    It might even make for a nice "Mother's Day" background.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Here is the EV (original) shot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . and HDR crop:

    I was at the lens' maximum focal length, so I simply had to "crop for the frame" ... to eliminate the bordering bush, the walkway and the vertical lamp post.

    But, hey, if you want monotonous ... I got your monotonous:

    It does make one wonder, "Who would plant something like this?"

    The originals look a little over saturated (particularly the red), especially on the second one where there looks like a loss of detail. It's very vibrant though. I think the original is much better! A lot more natural and doesn't have that photoshop hdr washed out look.
