    I love the first shot Phillip. The 2nd is one of the best small bird shots that I've seen. Very well done. Again I have to say that I'm envious (I find that I'm say that a lot to the shooters on this forum....;-)).
  5. Very very nice, i really love the first one
  6. Thanks for sharing these images. The second one is a killer. Way to go.
  7. I loved looking at both of these. Very, very nice.

    I am truly amazed at the Puffins ability to get an entire mouthful of fish at one time. That is an awesome series of this facinating and beautiful bird.

    the othere little birdiee is very good and pretty .
  9. Both of the posted images are compelling. Nice work!

    Really love the puffin shot.
    Do you merely merge it or do you actually re-arrange the bird position? I haven't played around much with Nikon 11 point AF. I still set mine to dynamic single point. I wonder if your shot was the dynamic group in action.
  12. WOW...great images! Do you give Photoshop lessons?
  13. Hi all thank you for your comments, jaminphoto might actually rearrange the bid positions over several layers then pulled out the parts that I no longer require, I use single point and occasionally dynamic group around a single point the bottom two selectors on the back of your camera D2x/hs.

    Scott I don't unfortunately I'm still coming to terms with the complexity of photo shop 7.01, I am always willing to give a explanation of how I have manipulated it on the few occasions I bother to do this kind of thing.
