    Oh that's georgous Rita.- As usual, I might add!
    You managed to capture the mood of the moment perfectly.
    Keep up this level of work and I'll have to send you a brand new D300 to
    make me a coffe table book of your glorious zoo life photos with!

    I'll even send you the entrance fee for the turnstiles so you don't have
    to go down on your knees like a certain other wild zoo shooter does.

  4. doug and annika are clearly biased, so I'll just agree with what
    everyone *else* has said about this shot, namely:

  5. Thank you for the gushing admiration, but I don't think I deserve it since
    I'm not up to that level of perfection yet. You see, a crappy lens that is
    so overwhelmingly sharp and a sensor that is unnaturally crisp and noise
    free that it’s near impossible to tone down to an acceptable level in
    Photoshop hinder me. I should have gotten a 40D instead and a fixed copy of
    CS3. This way I could produce awe-inspiring cartoons that are so
    overcorrected they deserve the gush!
    If only! The Baltimore Zoo sucks beyond compare and it's a waste of the
    entrance fee.

  6. Yep, sharp dressed ducks throw off their own glow. They should be wearing
    shades since they are so sharp.

    Ah, but your shots are way overcorrected as regards sharpening.
    Too bad your supposedly legitimate copy of Photoshop didn't include an
    instruction manual.

  10. Unlike you, I do very little Photoshop since it is done right in the camera.
    I do, of course, resize and save for web. The "overcorrected as regards
    sharpening" you are referring to is a signature trademark for newsgroup
    posting and is exclusively done by HTML resizing. Just ask Wolfie since he
    loves the effect. I mean, if you really want I can do some overcorrection
    in Photoshop since the old Mk III's sensor is virtually noiseless. Had I
    been using the 40D I would have to redraw my images in Photoshop to mask the
    noise. I'm sorry to say it, but the 40D seems to generate more noise than
    the Nikon D70.

    How would you know without looking at the RAW files?
    The settings you choose in ACR can greatly affect the perceived noise
    levels. Crank up the Sharpening and the pic will look noisier.
    Have you even seen a RAW file from the 40D?
    I posted one earlier so go look at that one and get back to me.
    It was a ISO 400 shot if memory serves.

  13. So what you are saying is you are getting all this noise from ACR? I think
    you have more issues to iron out to get rid of the noisy and painted look of
    most of your images. My guess is you are over aggressively Photoshopping
    them. I still think the 40D has major noise issues that are embarrassingly
    high.
