Male Purple Finch and Female Cardinal. These were from a week ago. I had too many projects around the house today to give any time to the camera.

That bad ? I guess I need to find a photo hosting site to fully show the picts without having to shrink them so much?

Zenfolio is $40 per year unlimited upload. Something did kill the IQ on these,Im sure they are great on your computer though.

Those aren't bad at all, Mike; quite the opposite, really :). Probably people just missed the post when it went up.

You could pay for a hosting site, like Zenfolio/SmugMug/Flick​r, or you could try Dropbox, which lets you both share files across computers you use and host the files from your shared location. I have Flickr for my personal files, right now and am using DB for hosting things like editing examples, etc.

Pete must have different eyes than me, as I see two pretty shots of two pretty birds, Mark.

These are decent shots Mark, sometimes the gray bg makes the total look of the pic a bit dull, but that actually helps in exposing the subject more. Personally, I prefer a bg that is not gray but you get what is available.


... does it really matter?i see with my eyes, i shoot with my fingers.
