Hey,

Very nice shots, I love the one with the water in the air! Very pretty birds too.

I like those..the colors are beautiful. What kind of camera did you use?

Hey all - thanks for the compliments. I originally posted this on the Panasonic manufacturers forum but I guess I got bumped here :confused:

Anyway, I'm currently shooting with a Panasonic FZ20
http://imageevent.com/24peter/birdbathpartdeux

The camera has a 12X optical zoom and a 5MP sensor. I also attached an Olympus TCON 14B teleconverter (1.4X).

Full specs for each pic can be seen by clicking the "Full EXIF" link at the bottom. Most of the shots were shot at F2.8 1/800th shutter ISO 100. These shots were done handheld.

You can see my FZ20 galleries by clicking on the link below. Thanks again for your support :)

Nice pics.

Can I inquire what focus you were using?

What white balance setting?

Did you PS anything?

Hey Shenook - I was using the one area autofocus. Auto WB. In the computer, I adjusted the exposure a little on many of those shots (to make them brighter since my FZ20 typically underexposes). Also, in a couple of shots, I sharpened up the birds a little where the focus was soft.
