Vale vulture, France.
What an experience when this bird flies over you with a span of 2.80 mtr.

Using a 2XTC is not always handy or practical but they have their place- this taken with a monopod.

Jeff I notice a difference with my files when I save from a Tiff and downsize to a smaller size Jpeg - say from a 5000pixal Tiff down to a 2000pixal jpeg, they tend to be darker so I need to mess around comparing the two before deleting the Tiff.


P.


Some stuff.

I am salivating for one of those after having one from CPS for a week. Holy moly what a great piece of glass.

It is a juvenile coloration night heron, I think a black-crowned. Great shot!

From my experience prints end up a hair darker, and of course the room matters. Since I moved to an NEC PA series monitor, there's a lot less frustration with the color/brightness of both reg prints and canvas. So the technology is def. improving.
