From the desert

Postby hamernhonkers » Fri Feb 26, 2010 11:34 pm

Not many ducks to get pics of down here in the desert so I am finding anything I can to take pics of now.

I am afraid I over sharpened this one but it is kind of cool trying to look into his eye's.

Very nice..you must have taken this close to ten yds? :thumbsup: with your 400mm..i prefer to set the camera to max sharpness. I think the pic is ok the second one could use some more sharpening

I miss my camera as it is out for warranty repairs..maybe I'll pull out the $35 trusty minolta 450si and slap on a $75 minolta beercan & load some 47 cent 200 film and shoot something as I am getting restless geese are hard to find

Nice shots! Oversharpening doesn't make up for camera shake or improper exposure, so don't think you need to over do it. The more natural a shot, the better IMO. Post up more!

I try to preset the sharpness, color and contrast on the sony camera so I hardly have to do any editing as I have a poorman's editing
program called picaso which is the s#$$@ and I can't load my sony picture browser because of a glitch with windows 7.
Keep those desert pics comming
