Those are some killer shots Pete. I'm not sure I've ever seen a shot of a bluebird in flight, it amazing!

Wow - just wow! The first one is a-friggin-mazing. Definitely deserves going on the wall.

I sympathize with the soft-after-uploading, I've had my share of problems of that sort also - I doubt that it's a problem with the forum website as such, though...
Thanks Tom and tclausen. I'm pretty pleased with the Bluebird in flight shots, I got several decent ones. Nothing good enough to sell, which is my main goal, but still pretty decent. And definitely not easy to get. I tried dozens of times. To get these I sat in my Jeep parked about 15-20 feet away and waited. I knew they would be in and out of the box. I originally built the box for Bluebirds, and Chickadees took it over...the Bluebirds still fought over it for a couple of weeks and apparently gave up because the Chickadees raised little ones eventually.

I've always noticed uploads are a bit soft, not sure why but it's irritating. These are definitely sharper than they look here...

Here are a couple more of the Bluebird in flight shots, taken around the same time at the same Bluebird box. Nothing great, but still decent enpough I'm not against showing them off a bit.

Some cool shots here. I haven't been online in a while and haven't posted anything at all, so I thought I'd drop a few newer K 30 shots in.







It's always irritating that these don't look as sharp after uploading as they do on my computer...These are good at 100% on my machine, but look soft after uploading...I was especially pleased some of my recent in flight shots, especially with these small birds...
Great shots!

Photo Heron - Thanks

New Englander - All taken with a K 30, and Vivitar 200mm M42 lens usually at f8. About 90% of the time I shoot ISO 200, occasionally ISO 400 if it's early AM and low light. These were all ISO 400, shutter speeds 1500 and 2000. These are posted in my gallery, EXIF is there. Or the parts that matter anyway...
