  1. Those are some pretty nice shots. I really enjoyed #6 just the 2 people sitting across. Also that squirrel was looking directly at you. Awesome :biggrin:

    Thanks for sharing these, the one I enjoyed the most was the daisy-field. However I do like the squirrel as well.
     
  3. AGreed with Robert, the Daisy field shot is fabulous.
     
  4. nice series...
    i like #3 the most

    one thing....
    in THIS picture:

    [​IMG]

    your EXIF was THIS:
    1/125s f/2.8 ISO100 145mm

    you have the D300....
    i'd have shot at ISO 400
    and f/4.... which would give you a much faster shutter speed... and more depth of field

    give yourself a bit more DOF for such a creature
    especially if you are shooting at 1/125
    either you'll MISS the focus or get some MOVEMENT, every single shot

    no need for ISO 100 in THAT situation.... IMHO
     
  5. and.....
    as was said above....
    the squirrel... in #9.... fantastic
     
  6. Thanks. My personal preference has got to be the squirrel.

    Another vote for the Squirrel
     
  8. Thanks for the comments everyone! The reason that one was shot at ISO 100 was because thats what my settings were and I didn't have but a minute or so to shoot the little guy before he ran away so I just did the best I could without wasting time changing settings. I'll definitely keep it in mind next time. :)
     
  9. Or if you are like me, you forget all about the settings over the excitement of getting a nice shot. And then it isn't as nice as you thought it would be. :wink:

    I do like the squirrel.
