Sometimes I forget to look at the whole bird when I see your 'eyes' Socrate

#1 is fabulous on exposure and WB and some clean greens too! No complaints from me with the 500+TC combo on these. Very nice variations on the warm brown and rust colored hues on the Nutmegs.

The BCC is always a challenge, very black and very white.................and you have captured both quite nicely

I am looking forward to some good Tufted shots soon, just starting to see them again and they are a very pretty bird, thanks for the teaser!

Karl





Thanks for the kind words, Karl. Those Tufted guys hardly stay still.
Looking forward to see your success

Another signature set of little ones from you Socrate, these are all lovely.
#1 is wonderfully composed, love the perch and beautiful greens surrounding the NM which is exposed perfectly.
2-4 are also very well done, but #1 is my favorite.
Excellent work and a pleasure to view.

Kirk




You are very kind, Kirk. Thank you!

fantastic lovely images, i prefer #1, but all are great too, and i can see why 1 series bodies are winner over 7D from last shot, i was going to say why that last one is least crispier and more noisy than the first or 3.





Thank you Tareq. To be fare the shot with the 7D was taken at ISO 1600, compared to ISO 400 of the MkIV, and I didn't really took time to do a good job cleaning it. But, yes, the MkIV file are smoother

Great shots of the mannikin Socrate and I love the other name...one calls it spice the other a more specific spice, nutmeg.
Eric




Thanks, Eric. These birds own many names actually. Scaly-breasted munia and spotted munia are another couple of them
