    Never was able to do this till I got the Hs. Always admired others images of shots like these and now I can play too :)

    Ben,

    I agree with you; these are excellent images. My advice though, is to back off of the USM just a tad. The shots are good enough that they don't need the extra sharpening IMHO. I think that you will be even happier with the results too.

    Don't get me wrong, these are very, very good. Just could be a little better with a little less boost in the sharpening. :wink:

    Thanks Frank, please don't be timid on my account. Appreciate this kind of input always. I'll go check tomorrow the original and give it a try.
    I'm still quite new with the Hs and raw files in particular in fact these are some of the 1st raw's I've shot. I have not even come to grips with which raw converter to use yet!! Again thanks for your advice.

  11. Very nice shots, Ben! I like these kinds of shots when you can see the bone structure in their wings.
     
  12. nice shots I agree with Frank back off the sharpenign a bit and the halos where the bird meets the sky will go away
