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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    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?

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