    Look what Mom's got

    Very nice composition and image sharpness. The sharpness is outstanding considering you did it hand held. From a kayak no less.

    Very old wheels.

    The modern engine sporting an electric starter makes me wonder how old the car might be. Might be something built just for fun. Like parades.

    Help! I just did a dumb thing!

    Karen, Close the viewfinder shutter and see if it will thread out.

    D800 I might have screwed something up

    Rick, On my D800e, when using A mode the main command wheel changes the aperture and the sub command wheel changes exposure compensation. That's the combination created when setting custom setting b4 to "ON". With b4 set to "off" the sub command wheel doesn't do anything. HTH,

    Tethered....But Not

    Doesn't look like the WU-1b is compatible with the D800. Any options for D800 users?

    300/f4 on flying Bee

    Like it! Just a wee bit deeper depth of field and it would be perfect.

    Cell phones in France

    Thanks for the input guys. She's only going to be there for two weeks. So I think she'll be OK until she leaves for Rome. Maybe the Italians will be easier to deal with.

    Cell phones in France

    I bought my daughter a Nokia 301.2 cell phone that was advertised as "FACTORY UNLOCKED QUADBAND 3G 850/1900 WORLD PHONE" to use in France. She's there now and the cell company Orange is telling her the phone is not unlocked. Any suggestions? Should I have her try another provider? Buy an...

    Wood Duck - Male.

    What a series! The detail on the second photo should be used in every review and ad for the 600mm.

    Downy Woodpecker

    I did use the AF Fine Tune. I used the "dot tune" method. Instructions are on You Tube. It's easy once you get the hang of it.

    North American Goldfinch

    I think we all need two jobs to support the dreaded "GAS"! Thanks! Thanks Louis. It's nice when things come together. Thank you.

    Goldfinch in the sunny weather

    Joe, stop making me spend my money!! I've got a 70-200 just aching to be paired to the TC-20EIII!! :) As always, wonderful photo. Looking forward to seeing more.

    North American Goldfinch

    We've been lucky this year. I've seen as many as 8 pairs around our feeders this spring. Taking a photo of one is a challenge. Very skittish. Getting my back to the sun seems to help conceal my presence.

    Downy Woodpecker

    Thanks Alex. Thanks Louis. It was right on the minimum focus of the 300 f/4 and TC1.7 combo. i was pleasantly surprised by the sharpness. Me too, most of the time. We have lots of woodpeckers and I'm forever taking a photo of a tree trunk!! :)

    Goldfinch in the sunny weather

    Very nice Joe. Good composition. The 70-200 with the TC2.0 renders very nicely. Can't get over how different your Goldfinches are from ours.

    Gnatcatcher and Dove

    These are very nice. I like the framing of the dove photo. It's good to be able to go outside and not freeze isn't it?

    Thanks for letting me know about FM. I'm looking through information on their website trying to learn the best methodology. Looks like a good program so far.

    Brown Creeper

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'm unsure how much post processing is acceptable on bird photos. That's the principal reason I was hesitant to clone out the twig. Some forums seem to frown on post production (birdphotographers.net for example) want a full listing of everything you've...

    Thanks for the encouragement Richard.

    Here's my attempt at removing the twig. Retouching bird photos is harder than retouching people photos! With twig removed: Thanks to everyone for your help.

    All I can say is WOW. Thanks very much. I'll have to give focus magic a go.

    Brown Creeper

    I'm very fortunate to have a small creek feeding into a lake behind our home. With a small bird feeder I've attracted many different birds and have received many hours of enjoyment in return. From my back porch I see geese, herons, many types of ducks, woodpeckers, and many song birds. Hopefully...

    Brown Creeper

    Thanks Richard. I'm not that good at cloning! I'll give it a try though after seeing your results. Makes an incredible improvement. Did you clone across the tail of the bird? Appreciate you taking the time to do this.

    Here's another from the set of photos. Not as sharp as I like but no twig.

    Since this was in my back yard I think I'll trim back the twigs along my creek to give me better sight lines. Just a few.
