I was harassing some killdeer yesterday and caught them right after a rain storm.

on the 1st 2 maybe consider underexposing in RAW when you shoot them and then bring some light back...they are a little hot on the whites...the others are very nice

i'm not sure

where was the focus pt ? try more ISO and stop down the aperture, f7 is good. Since the BG is ok no worries about DOF and more DOF will help focus the whole bird

try a little more usm and repost if u don't mind


btw, the BG rocks on these !

Well...the shots aren't entirely in focus. I tried to save them with USM, but I didn't want to overdo it. Thankfully the shots were almost completely full frame (I only cropped just a bit). Since the light was crappy (it was still sprinkling a bit) I was trying to keep the shutter speed high enough to freeze these guys in mid air, that's why the f/stop is a bit low. I've been trying to get more DoF in my shots lately...but having to deal with the afternoon thunderstorms have been a pain (damn clouds). Also, I'm not taking these in RAW, just shooting JPG's now as I've grown a bit lazy going through all of my shots. :biggrin: Here is the shot unedited straight out of the camera, only resized.
