I drove by the park the other day and the birds were out having a blast. This is my first attempt at birdtoghraphy, but here is what I got:

C + C always appreciated. :)

They are a little dark and too small, but the goose walking on water is neat. I wonder why they do that, cause they are easily capable of leaping into the air and taking off from a dead stop. :)

I may have downsized them a bit too much to post on the forum. When you guys downsize to post what size and res do you usually set to?

I think they do that from water because of the surface tension of the water. All that water wants to keep them in it, unlike just jumping up from the land. That's a huge shot in the dark though, don't quote me on it !

I usually downsize to a width of 800pixels. Usually acceptable on most forums these days while still being decently large for most images.

Resolution - I'm far from a tech-expert but the main problem is the level of .jpg compression - as well as the quality of the original pic of course - that makes the biggest difference for web viewing, IMO. Try using a better jpg compression value - tho that makes the file bigger and worse for dialups. :)

Far as I can tell, dpi resolution seems more geared to printing rather than web-viewing.
