Garden Birds

Garden BirdsNice selection of garden birds. I too have a D300s but haven't experienced any issues with noise above ISO 600. I think in this situation I would have used a higher shutter speed such as 1250 or 1600 and increased my DoF to 5.6. This should give you more detail in the feathers and blurred the background more. Did you use a tripod?

I think your images of both the sparrow (3) and starling (1) are best as they show catchlight in the eyes. Image 2 by contrast doesn't have this catchlight and therefore the dove looks a little flat. Thanks for the software tip. Have you seen the Blue Crane video for the D300s? There are lots of tips for making the best use of the camera on it. Thank you for sharing.

high altitude

high altitudeLovely view - obviously a good viewpoint. It appears that your ISO setting was a little too high which is why there is noise in your photograph. Next time you take a shot like this, try reducing your ISO, place your camera on a steady surface (tripod if you have one, or a wall if available - or you could brace yourself against a tree) and experiment with slower shutter speeds. I think you may be surprised by the result. Thank you for sharing.

Murcheson Falls - on the Nile

Murcheson Falls - on the NileThis is a lovely land/water scape. I might have cropped a little off the left hand side to place your boulder in the LH lower corner but other than that you have a lovely lead in with a dramatic curve to the right directing your eye to the waterfall and beyond. You've lost some definition in the waterfall but if you had taken this in RAW you would have been able to adjust your photograph to correct this - all in all a very pleasing picture. Thank you for sharing. Sue

young cheetah at Chester ZOO

young cheetah at Chester ZOOCute subject and nicely framed. The pelt of the cheetah could have been a little sharper and by making the background out of focus your subject would have more prominence. To really enhance animal portraits you should add some catchlight in the eyes - this is easily added using Photoshop.
