THIS is what guineas sound like, by the way - there was a pun in the "noisy" experience... ;)


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.
I only bite on the second Tuesday of every week, usually only mean people - they kinda taste like chicken...

They sure sound like a handfull:-) Have fun with your birds - count yourself lucky that you have all these animals around you.
Btw, I think you handled the balance between noise and detail in that picture really well -I certainly would be happy with that shot.

I count myself VERY lucky - if you are blessed enough to be able to really see - I guess with your heart? Not sure. You figure out that every living thing has its own identity and personality (even trees have auras, and they will change when the rain is coming - it's like they know it and they're excited). Getting to share those lives and know them and be part of them is a real honor. From my wayyyy too big to be a house dog laying on the couch with me right now to the three cats that have moved in on the front porch, I'm thrilled for every life I get to know. :)

Thank you that was actually the feedback I was looking for. I saw that I'd accidentally used the wrong ISO settings and figured it was a chance to start playing with noise reduction on the 7D, and the detail in the face and the feathers would be something that would require a lot of restraint while still trying to fix it, so it was a good chance to try my hand on it and get recommendations/feedba​ck on whether or not I was on to the right idea. After I read some of the noise complaints about the 7D I was worried maybe even if I was advanced enough to understand much of running it that I might be a miserable failure in the post processing department.

Do you see a big difference between the t1i and the 7D? Just wondering, I have the t1i.

I have only had the 7D for almost exactly a month. I think it's a month in 3 days. It has much faster, much surer auto focus, very different controls, more customization... the little screen on the top right is so much nicer than having to look at the back of the camera to change quick settings. I've used it almost long enough to start figuring out which custom settings I'm going to put on my three programmable choices. Well, I know of at least one... :)

I absolutely LOVE it. It fits my hands better, feels more sure/sturdy. It reminds me of my old SLR.

Hey Wuzzi,
First off, it's very rare that you need to take me seriously....I was just pulling your leg about the 7D thread :lol:

And about "blown highlights". This is an interesting area for mistakes, because very often the "highlight" in a shot is the sky, or a part thereof....which may not be much to do with the subject.

So, "blowing" a part of the sky in order to capture a slightly exposed-to-the-right subject can be a good thing to do.

Not always.....but quite often.

Oh, and about trees having auras, you haven't been smoking something "exotic" have you?
;)

Nope, nothing exotic. I've seen tree auras since I was a little girl... they will get this brighter glow around them that gets larger the closer the rain gets. :)

I was really lucky as a child. We had 116 acres that was 90+% managed timber. It was a valley, so I could turn and look in all directions and it was all ours. There was a creek that I was taught to use when I was really little to not get lost - you would follow it INTO the big woods and as long as you stayed where you could get back to it, you just had to follow it back upstream to find home. There were trees there so big I couldn't wrap my arms around them - just lay against them and not even get halfway. Just a magical place.

So maybe it just is a side effect of spending so much time around it - maybe I even imagine the auras and it's just enough experience that I felt the weather change long before I got old enough that other parts of my body assure me it's changing? ;-)a

I think you should change your name to "Nature Girl". :-)

Sounds like an idyllic childhood, though.

And all this "tree" stuff would make the local (to me) Japanese Shinto Tree Spirits very happy!

Cheers for now,
Simon
