    Don't critique toooo harshly...yet ;).

    This looks like a really friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable board. I'm glad I joined.

    I apologize for the noise and the blown out highlight on the beak in the bird photo.

    Wow!! These are some awesome shots. Really great captures , colour and detail are perfect. Frame # 3 ! Looks like a type of Kingfisher bird. The sun glare off the beak makes it pop. Nice shooting.

    hahaha oh thanks! You like the glare on the beak then!

    They were taken with a Panasonic Lumix Fz20 at Disney's Animal Kingdom. The first two were taken while on the Kilimanjaro Safari ride. The bird was taken on one of the "nature" trails. I got really lucky with the girafe...it came quite close to the truck. The wildebeast was in an open plain and I zoomed up a tad on him and quickly snapped away before we sped off.

    I added a slight USM to the first too and about a 10-15 increase in saturation.

    I enjoyed the series. There has been several Giraffe pictures on this forum and this is as good as any I have seen. You might want to pass it off as a crow. It too would be as good as any of the crow shots thus far. lol.

    Very good animal photos all taken in good light which really brings out the colours.
    The glare on the crow's (teehee :lol: ) beak doesn't bother me at all. As long as you can pass it as a crow ( :biglaugh: ), it is ok.

    (Read some of the other threads and you might get into all this crow-business going on here at present... it is hard for a newcomer to understand, I do admit!)

    Thanks!

    It seems that every bird picture people take is labeled as a crow. Most seem to want to capture a real crow on a gravestone. One person keeps taking pictures of pigeons and insisting that they're crows.
