Spent a very happy couple of hours in the PS on Friday, using it as a hide to try and get some decent shots of the birds coming to our feeders. This young Greenfinch was a regular, scattering around the seeds he didn't want. We have possibly the fattest wood pigeons in the area, who patrol the gardens looking for such cast-offs.

Pretty pleased with this one, but as ever all feedback welcome.

hi Ian, cannot see exif so don't know how you are shooting - but assuming not full manual, have you considered use of just a little -EC to reduce or avoid the few 'blown' areas?

Hi Phil. Not sure why the exif didn't come through, maybe the LR settings have changed. I was shooting in aperture priority.

I assume you mean the small blown areas on the beak and just under the throat. To be honest the light was changing so quickly as the tree moved in the wind that I decided there was little point using -EC. I have quite a ferw others where nothing is blown. I had meant to reduce the highlights a little in LR, but forgot. Sad.

To be honest I'm just happy I managed to get it remotely in focus. Smile

Thanks for the feedback.

Ian
