Scarlet-chested Sunbird

Scarlet-chested SunbirdI have wanted a picture of a sunbird - any species - for years, but never managed to get anything remotely as good as this. Even so, I think another pass of unsharp mask would improve this shot still further.

Butterfly on the flower

Butterfly on the flowerNice shot, I was going to comment that I would like to have seen the subject slightly lower in the frame, and slightly to the left so that it was looking more into the picture. Then I noticed those big, black seed pods top right, and I think you got it right. Nice capture.

Bull African Elephant

Bull African ElephantNice capture, although a little too closely cropped for my personal taste. With a grey animal you have to be very careful with against
the light shots, and this is a little on the dark side. Load the image into Photoshop, go to Enhance, Adjust Brightness/Contrast, Levels. When you have reached levels move the middle triangle slightly to the left, and be amazed at the increase in detail in the elephant. If you have any trouble with this drop me a message.

black panther

black pantherThere is always a problem photographing black animals. Here your exposure was fine for the background, but the subject is too dark, with most of the head lacking detail. Try going into Photoshop and using the levels command. Go to the middle arrow and move it slightly to the left. You will be astonished at the extra detail revealed in the fur. Give it a try, and then repost it.
