    To get a good shutter speed I had to bump my ISO all the way up to 1600. My aperture was as wide as it would go as well - I need a nicer lens... :)

    I bumped up the saturation a bit and adjusted the shadows just a touch. I also ran it through Noise Ninja to try to clean it up a bit after using that high ISO.. What do you think?

    Thanks for looking.. :)

    :thumbup: Nice capture. I'd aim for a less busy background and consider using a flash to freeze the bird.

    I think you did a pretty good job...you got stop motion on its wings, which isn't all that easy.

    Thanks for the comments! I was trying to freeze the action in his wings, hence the 1600 ISO. My flash doesn't sync above a 1/200 shutter speed, so using that wasn't an option - I just had to use what light was available and I was fairly pleased with the outcome.

    Next time I'll try to plan better and take more time to get a nicer and less distracting background.
