    These Nuthatches had to chase off a pair of Blue tits who tried to muscle in. Taken at ISO 500, D70s at F4 WB Shade, distance about 15 yards, not sure of crop percentage, PP on Lightroom..

    The birds movement is difficult to freeze, would a higher ISO achieve that?

  2. Rob the photos look good but I think your choice of the WB of shady has made them a warm yellowish cast. I would suggest trying a little blue to tone the yellow cast down. I think for most of us we are better off leaving that WB in AUTO and if you shoot raw you can always make any changes in the processing.

  4. Looks better Rob now if you have PSCS2 or Nikon Capture and you shot in the RAW mode you can try again from the raw and place the WB on Auto.

    I have tried again with preset WB, 200 ISO and a monopod, I found getting focussed much easier as the monopod allowed me to get beneath the camera which was difficult with the tripod. The colours seem more natural this time.
    70-200VR with 1.4 TC from about 15 yards. Crop about 100%.

    Any comments or advice appreciated.
