more pics of butterflies

These are great Peter :) The colours are beautiful and all the shots are pin sharp ;)

Great posts by everyone......

Thanks Killerclown I appreciate it.

[QUOTE=KILLERCLOWN;130​94976][QUOTE=KILLERCLO​WN;13094819]

Right I have decided what pp I will do in the future, this shot was opened and converted with DPP. I made a few adjustments with the sliders but left all settings on the ones I used on the camera ( if this makes sense ) I moved contrast, sharpness & highlights then went to PS CS5 to remove the marks that are on my sensor with the spot healing brush ( I need to have this cleaned ) two minutes and that was job done, and I'm happy with the result.

Very nice butterfly shots Peter.

Thanks Dian.

Thank you! :)

When I took this photo, I wanted to get the light beams to really stand out so I underexposed it by almost 2 stops (I always shoot in manual mode). That kept the back light from blowing out too much. I also shoot everything in raw. The beauty of shooting raw is it allows you to bring out the details in the shadows and to recover blown highlights easier. Because I had underexposed for the sun beams, it wasn't too hard to recover some of the detail in the image by increasing the recovery slider. I then used fill light to bring out the underexposed foreground. I use Lightroom 3 for these edits and pretty much most all of my images...sometimes I'll open CS5 if needed.

Once you get the hang of using the camera and learning what can be done in post processing, you can start creating shots with the post processing in mind (i.e. taking a photo that you know you want to convert to B&W). My image of the Turkey Crossing, I knew that I could underexpose to expose the sun shafts properly, while being able to bring back the details in post processing so that the image looked more like what my eye saw. There is no way that I could have captured what my eye saw with the image straight out of the camera. The other option would have been to take an HDR image here (at least 3 exposures), but I was in my car without the tripod at the time.

Great points.....I will have to try this next time I see rays. Awesome turkey crossing shots.

+1 DIAN....That lens was my first choice over 70-200mm but still is in my list to buy.
How is the autofocus in a low light, I remember a lady I encounter in horse racing she have the 100-400mm lens attached to the monopod according to her it is very good in low light also.

Dian you sure put that 100-400 to good use, I'm always impressed by the quality you get. I tried one out at the store, that push pull thing is hard to get used to but I like how compact it is for storage, I forsee one in my future.

The lowest light place i have used it so far is my back yard. we live in the woods,surrounded by trees. i wont say that i dont throw away some that are to dark,but i also manage to get a few keepers :)

Thanks Dian.

I was just trying to figure out how to post here using my flickr account I did not know this is so easy. I use click manage attachement and put only 2 at a time and for most of the time it will comeback as the file is too large so I would resize it to the smallest size, I did not you can just copy the bbc code and paste it....duh....I always wonder why many of you can put two or more pics from flickr.....Now I will sign to pro status in flickr tonight. Sorry I am just too excited I accidentally figured it out, I just copy and paste just like photobucket.
