[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Attempt at 12 X Zoom on this lorikeet in the treetops. After many failures to get sharpness this is almost aceptable (i hope).
Slightly unexpected sky colouring maybe caused by being in late afternoon- pre dusk shadow. Took off the polarizer normally used in daylight. Need more practice at settings- or a camera that does more things automatically!

Hi Murray,
I think this is you best shot so far :-) Congratulations! Sharpness is better on this one but I guess you didn't have great lightning for this; I am right? I would like to know how you post-processing it. Maybe that shadow and highlight in PS CS could have helped. Did you change the color of the sky? Thanks,

Hello Murray,
Well framed and presented in a pleasant composition!
Interesting to see how the bird has placed himself in the absulute top of the branch...
12x zoom is a lot! Steady hand if this is hand held!

splendide image murray
bons détails


Hello Murray,
definitely a nicely composed capture from long distance with good details. Slightly increasing contrast would certainly be recommended to increase the impact.
Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Best regards,
