    Grant's Farm

    A few pics from todays excursion to Grant's Farm. The Farm takes its name from the 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. In the 1850s, Grant founded and farmed a portion of the 281 acres. This is the ancestral home of the Busch family and is preserved as a symbol of their love for animals and Anheuser-Busch's commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation. C&C welcome

    Nice to see good quality pics turn out with the same camera I have. Curious... did you have your camera set to 800 iso the whole time on purpose or just happened?

    Re: Grant's Farm

    They are good, Mike, but just a couple of technical points which I notice.

    Both parrot photos have a bit of excessive white areas towards the image top. I would try to tone these down a little with some slight editing adjustments.

    It is a pity about that fence on the second photo but perhaps you didn't have any other options.

    The third one is excellent.

    And ideally, I would have liked to see a little more of the little girl's face; but once again, you can only shoot what is available to you.

    Rather minor points though.

    Re: Grant's Farm

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I did have ISO set to 800. I'm still learning how to anticipate the affect. The day was overcast, I didn't have a flash, and I wanted a higher shutter.

    I see what you mean about the bright spots on the first photo. This gives me more reason to practice the post processing. The fence did get in the way, however the Clydesdale were so use to the public they kept walking over to me and with the 55-250mm I took what I could get. Same with the kids with the pygmy goat, when they were being really cute I never had my camera up and/or someone would step in front of me. Surprisingly, for the third one I was on a bumpy tram riding through an open area where the animals roam.

    Here's a few more.

    My shot at addressing the bright spot in the first shot.
