    As Sahil says but I think the blown sky actually helps with the pics. Maybe I should try that sometime.

    Thanks for the feedback! I guess I could have tried to adjust the sky exposure and "fix" the colors, but I sort of like this different look. That birds was WAAAAY up in brutal light, so I'm lucky I even got anything!

    Hi Sean,

    Nice captures.

    I have to say, I rarely bother to shoot into bright light these days because I just don't like the results, but these are 'not too bad' Maybe I should try more/harder

    Cheers,

    Nice images Sean, you did well in very difficult light. It appears that the Hummingbird was perched on a Sea Grape plant against a very bright sky. Good job.
