[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These two finches were on my feeder this morning. My camera lens returned from service so I'll be uploading more now.

I took many shots of these two while they were in my yard, but I think this was the best. There is some OE on the red finch. I'm open to any suggestions on what could have been better as far as my settings are concerned.

Nice shot Kurt. The red is a male house finch and the yellow is a male American gold finch. Both have oe but it is still a cute shot. I wish I knew what to suggest to adjust the exposure. I took some red tulips yesterday and they too had oe. Wish I would have known before it started pouring again so I could have played around with the settings. If I figure it out will let you know. And if anyone can explain to you, I hope I will learn too. Look forward to seeing more. TFS, Lori

Hi Kurt,
NIce capture of these finches. The birds are posing nicely and the detail is good. As for the OE, I might have shot with a lower ISO setting and a faster exposure. You can also take of some of the OE in PP if your software is decent. I did a workshop I hope you don't mind.

Nice definition and clarity The workshop appears to have captured more of the colour Nice effort

Hi Kurt,
Nice caught of view of these beautiful birds,
excellent details and light,
The workshop look that you have taken a beautiful picture of these birds..

A nice catch with lovely poses from both these cute birds, dear Kurt!

The sharpness and focus could be bit better I feel but overall it worked well.
The colors are natural and contrast are quite nice though I like the WS done by Kevin.
Overall, a charming work.

Well done!

Kind regards,
