    James, your "yard birds" are very nice. I really like #1 and #4 the best. #4 has devil eyes

    Nice shots james. I like the compositions.

    They look a little underexposed to me. I think you can bring more life to them if you push your exposure a little more (in camera) and then bring it back in post.

    lol Jon That female Red-bellied Woodpecker, she comes in screeching like a devil scattering chicadees ,wrens, finches and the like.
    Thanks for the tip Steve by pushing exposure do you mean moving my histogram more to the right? Then bringing back to left in pp?

    Yes..........you will capture more information if you increase the exposure .

    Most of the info is in the right 1/3 of the dynamic range of the camera. The further you push your exposure to the right, the more info and less noise you will have. Just don't over do it, or clip anything.

    I like to overexpose about 2/3 of a stop. With a little practice , you will know how far you can go. Just keep an eye on your histograms and the colors in the image.

    Thanks Bobo, & Paul I think these images may be a little sharper due to tweaking the pp a little. I also upped my iso on the woodpecker up to 1600 and I have never produced an image at that iso that i liked before . I have been trying to get my bird shots upped to 2000ths a sec, for the freeze. Thanks again all .
