    Long way out.
    It's a female figbird and they're not berries, they're palm seeds.

  3. I agree with Barbara. It's a female figbird.

  4. Crikey. This image is an excellent example of a horribly OVEREXPOSED
    background. The top left *screams* it's presence.. Another one for
    the what-not-to-do file.

    Douglas has spoken about his mastery of masking (after Annika showed
    him what to do, of course), and yet he ignores it on an image that
    simply cries out in pain for some treatment...

    The best he can do when an area needs brightness adjustment is
    illustrated here:

    His work on the guy's suit and the lady's torso is without peer.

    (Thank God.)

    I have to agree with Mark. But I also believe that the 20D was meant
    for some decent L glass. IMHO it's such a waste to use an inferior
    lens.

    All I know is that it is a bird. A little over exposed. Good catch
    light in eye. Brings life to the image. Looks a bit soft in focus. But
    then it could be my monitor and/or eyes.
    I would like to see it about a stop darker and maybe the background
    burned down another half stop past that.

    Great capture of the moment. Bet that feathered thief was gone just
    after the shutter stopped moving.

    Keep at it.

    Getting even isn't good enough.


    Doing better does.
