Not even a rainstorm can stop Harry from his breakfast.

The second one (flying left) sure looks like Texas weather with the blue sky
and all.

higher asa for shooting to get dof and shutter speed.
adjust the contrast of the image
increase the saturation as required.

Hi Annika1980

<grin> You're a much nicer person than the
voice of that reply.

Though I haven't shot birds in the
rain, I do have some thoughts you
may want to consider.

The shutter speed of 1/200 is too
slow. You're already at ISO 800.
Dunno if the Fab D60 goes up to a useful
ISO 1600. If not, you'll have to open
up the lens a stop or two to get the
extra speed.

Even if you have to underexpose a bit,
digitial's pretty good at exposure
boosting. The sharpness gained
would be well worth it.

As shot the image is underexposed.
A Levels adjustment histogram in Photoshop
reveals that. I got good results on the
exposure part of the image's issues by
adding a Levels adjustment layer, with
blackpoint:12, whitepoint:184, gamma: 0.87.

Cheers,

Stan

Oh, one cheap trick:

Grab a big black brush and paint in the
background parts of the image in the
Levels adjustment layer's mask. The
background will remain flat and a bit
dim, popping the bird out a bit more.

Cheers,

Stan

Why do you need any tips? You've previously told us before you are an expert
photographer, shouldn't you be giving us tips instead?

Great shots Bret.
Why do you shoot in jpeg vs raw?

Not the D60's fault lol.
A local journalist uses the D60 for lots of stuff. Great work with it.
