    Then this Male Bluebird landed just now and I had to shoot something...Canon FDn 200/2.8, NEX-7, ISO200

    Nice capture, nice photo!
    There's just something I don't quite like on the background/OFF area....can't be "noise" since you shot this at ISO200...

    I agree - maybe over sharpened accentuating the noise?

    Thanks...not sharpening...I was experimenting with an adjustment called "warmth" as it was such a dark cold dreary day...didn't realize I had saved it with that left on...I just went back and returned it to 'neutral'...don't know how long it takes for Photobucket to get a change to show up downstream but I assume it will eventually

    Here he is again just now.
    No tweaking but there's a similar brown background...that's just the carpet of wet brown leaves...the most predominant color on out for a long way through the bare woods. Conversely, note that all the other colors of the bird and wet pine tree are normal.
