its hard to make out the datail on the bird
I know Eagle I know, but it was my first shot at the guy. I'd been chasing him for weeks and weeks, and I had to work as it was to get as much detail out of these as I could.
He is such a tease. Every time I'm out in the yard he circles, by the time I grab my camera he's up and away.
I'll keep trying.
You are absolutely correct, they ARE terrible.

I would invest in a polarizer if you are going to be taking pictures of things in the sky. The background on those is waaay blown out. If you had a polarizer and a slower shutter speed those could look a little better.
I would drop the iso to like 640 or something like that so you can use a smaller arpature / slower shutter and polarizer.
What gave it away? The fact that it says it is an Olympus Canon Digital Rebel?
IP I thought you shot with film
Strawberry Tree was taken with film. There are cobwebs all over my Minolta.
Yeah ok I tried doctoring these (overkill) in Photoshop, that's what I get for wanting them to come out so badly.
It is refreshing though to hear the truth.
Thanks for the tips guys, I appreciate it.
By doctoring do you mean cranking the brightness and contrast up so high you can't see any detail? Cause if that is what you mean then you sure did a bang up job doctoring.
good effort. Try, try again
