Amazed I managed to get a saver with the settings on this - took about 5/6 and this is the only one with any part in focus.It was so dark and starting to rain at the time.

If it was that dark, why were you shooting at an ISO of 100 tut tut.
Still though at 1/50th sec you have got a very good steady well detailed capture Keith and a small catchlight as well so there must have been some sun about Wink

Thanks everyone...

Richard.....I almost always stay at iso 100 as the OLY does not like anything higher (probably me).
If I start messing in levels/contrast etc and large crops it gets messy and then I have to try NR which looses any detail I have managed.
As sods law (or a good choice of iso) would have it almost all I did with this was a crop and sharpen which is always a bonus.
This is along a stream with overhanging trees down both sides and now the leaves are starting to come the light levels are going down but there's a gap which lets a lighter patch through so that must have picked out the catchlight.
Thanks
Keith
