    Pretty good. I'm wondering, with the 170-500mm shouldn't you be able to get a closer and tighter shot? Do some post process and the pictures will turn out much better.

    The webster thinks the shots are pretty good but somehow seem to lack something which he himself is not sure what it was.


    The webster also wonders if this birdie is a fan of Micheal Jackson's Smooth criminal

    THNX for the comments noordin yes it is true with 170-500mm i can get even closer without any need for cropping (infact none of the photos above r cropped) but i just feel that if the bird were to be so big to fit the whole frame then i'll feel a bit hard to breath (too tight)

    but again this is very subjective as some might prefer tighter framing while others (like me) prefer a less tighter frame

    Hey cfyung, it was a fun time shooting with you. With your 170-500mm you can shoot at a very far point while I had to crawl and climb up and down so that i can be close to the subject, haha. Vey nice photos you got there, post more man ! Personally, I prefer putting the subject on the left or right, instead of in the middle

    Hi cfyung85,

    You've done well to get some sharp images there even though you had to contend with f6.3 at the widest. Perhaps what noordin meant is that a closer crop would bring good focus on the bird itself. With such a shallow DOF, it's a thin line to consider whether to leave the OOF background in the picture or to leave it out completely. Sometimes it makes a much better picture if you don't try and cram too many things/elements into one picture. As long as there are no obvious distractions to lead your eyes away from the picture then it's fine whether you leave in a little of the background or not.

    I hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread to post some closeup examples I took on the same day.

    THNX for the comments ivan haha its nice shooting with u too! n its funny looking how u crawl up n down the hills trying to shoot the birds but actually 170 at the wide end really suc a bit cos its so hard for me to shoot a bird close to me the reason i put my subject in the middle in the center circle is bcos i'm using center weighted metering so its easier to get a good exposure anyway i'll try n process my photos faster but due to the uni report that i need to pass up this coming friday its really a big headache now

    say ivan...really tak mau tukar system ar? tukar la...tukar to nikon then next time i can borrow my lens for u to play with olympus too cold la...

    cfyung, i cant stop myself from laughing reading the last sentence, haha. You been darkening me to the nikon side since the first moment you saw my camera But serious speaking, should Olympus not coming out with a pro body soon, I may consider a D200 or 30D

    No wonder, you are on center weighted. Nevermind, go slow with the post processing, we are patience people

    even if olympus come out new pro body i still continue to darken u to join the darkside until u fall to the darkside okla just joking man. the choice is up to u to decide but olympus just came out E330 not too long ago so it should be some time before a pro body say E2 will come out to replace the E1

    Thanks tsechien. I must really ask you help in cataloging my amatuer bird pictures. I found it funny everytime I try to name my pictures to post on my gallery, I am stuck for their names!

    You certainly are the master of this field!
