    The oof looks really nice and the bird in the 4th image looks really scary.

    I like the last photo (no. 9)... he is the Chief :eek:

    It is obviously the same bird in photo no. 8 but you rotated it 90 degrees counter-clockwise? This is clever because it makes the composition more striking.

    What is your ISO?

    Thanks, guys.

    The iso was usually between 400 and 800 so that I could keep the shutter up...Sony has to come up with a fast tele.

    pictures are nice :)
    but
    1.way too saturated
    2. very noisy ( could have accidentally pulled out the noise when u adjusted the saturation)
    3. too high contrast

    recommendation: chill on the PP, aim for more natural look

    just my 2 cents, ignore my ramblings :)

    In painting there is a vast option of inks, paints, oils, styles, looks and this never allowed me to understand why photographers are so uptight about getting a "realistic" look. Most painters capture THEIR reality instead of an exact replica of what they are seeing. In cases of some portraits it´s even tacky to have a perfect replica of a persons face painted.
    Anyway, this is MY reality.

    On a technical not I´ve decreased saturation 20% (I NEVER increase saturation). The photos are noisy because I sometimes had to go up to iso 800 to increase shutter speed on account of the tele being slow.

    Very nice images, if a bit processed looking.
