Emin,

White balance and POV are very good. Certainly a perfect action with focus right on.

Keep up the good work.

Edna,

Excellent timing and most of action was framed well. Often action shots happen to quick (as in this case) to capture the entire scene. What is framed is very fine. One comment regarding post processing: note the white line along the contour of each bird ... this is a result of over sharpening. When using the unmask sharpening function, sharpen to your liking and when a "halo" appears, back off your degree of sharpening until the halo just disappears. I learned NOT to sharpen image until AFTER resizing. If you sharpen before and then reduce in size, the resulting reduction often is overly sharpened and you can't fix it. Reduce, THEN sharpen if you so desire. Also, the blues show too much saturation. Your f stop and speed are right for the action.

TFS and best regards,

Mike

Lou,

You never cease to amaze with your images. Bokeh is excellent with extensive detail with great DOF. Closest antennae is only think out of focus. You picked the best image of the three to display.

Hi Stone,

Great capture of this Cincindelidae (Tiger Beetle). They are difficult to photograph. Did you know they move so fsst that they exceed their nerve impulse that innervates their muscles and they literally run over their prey? He is undoubtedly metallic blue, but I think you have over saturated the images (especially in the blues). Excellent DOF and focus through most of it.

Hi Mustafa,

Great capture of this vole. It probably has an interesting flea! I would be interested in how you captured this image? Lighting and DOF are perfect ... well done.

Difficult to capture continuously moving snakes! Great capture from a very low POV!

I do not know what your preferred name is, so I say hello Syed Abid. Fine image of the beautiful woodpecker. I scanned many of your bird pictures and many are impressive. You do well with your Sony. Isn't it a joy to choose to be close to nature as we are? Your kindness shines forth with many of your remarks on your images.

Best wishes,

Mike

Hello Lou,

Its been awhile since I have visited TN. These amazing and without pigmentation. I like the Workshop insect. You probably already know, but it is a very robust Collembola (springtail).

Peter,

What a great shot. You are right ... paradise not far away. Your wise selection of high ISO, wide aperture, and rather rapid ss was a mark of your success. The POV is timely and nothing short of fabulous. TFS
