You can fool me FS...but not the squirrels, they were on it right away! Lovely!

#1...I like it, and the colors are superb!

#2 is just perfect! You need to give me that lens since you hardly use it.....After all, squirrels say "That FS must sure have some nice lenses to get fine such shots!"

#3 ...not sure just what that might be, since you leave us guessing?...but I can tell you for certain my raccoons would give it a go!

Cute family portrait. I've got a small group that looks like they could be related living in the giant oak in my back yard... they have the run of the place at night I think, and that's ok as long as our paths don't cross during the day.

I have families of them that have come every night for many years. Friendly little critters and so much fun to watch! I feed them well and know them all so there is never a problem. Mrs Rupert is not fond of them...but I am!

Much better with her eyes sharp like that IMO. Good shot.

Fine set. I especially like the leopard, but then, I especially admire cats.

No, i understand what you mean, and I`m aware of soft portraits, but I guess when the concept of a soft focus portrait is present - you will have much less doubt if the straight of camera JPG done with 28-105mm DFA f3.5-5.6 is in focus or in shake/motion blur.

---------- Post added 03-07-17 at 11:51 AM ----------




HoustonBob - this one is lot better. For heads up on K1 - please check if your SR (Shake Reduction) is on.
You can also bump up the ISO one stop to have a bit faster shutter speed. Also - you can decrease the distance/range to get a higher F stop. All this should eliminate the motion blur from the subject.
'
One of the problems of age - I'll be 69 this month - is that a person's eyes lose their ability to see fine detail. Moreover elderly people tend to forget that their eyes aren't as sharp as they once were since the loss in acuity comes on very gradually. The picture in question didn't look soft to me when I examined it blown up on the camera's rear screen - so I didn't bother to blow it up further on my computer to see if it had blur.

As to your technical advice... The average passing score on the Professional Photographers of America's rather difficult Certified Professional Photographer written exam is 71 - with a minimum passing score of 70. 71 is not the average score on the exam, that is the average passing score of the successful candidates. A large percentage of the experienced professional photographers taking that test don't pass it. When you score higher than my 91 on that exam you'll be in a position to offer me technical advice - until then... yeah, not so much.

You have a few years on me but I have the same problem on the small screen too, Bob. I doubt the advice offered was intended as anything but helpful.

I've been looking for interesting ice lately as it breaks up along the river. The tilting screen and live view are very handy for some of these.
