Shutter Speed
In reply to jcmarfilph, May 22, 2012

I had a look at your images again and I think it is your shutter speed that is the problem and why I think you have lost some detail.

In the second post (first with images) the third pigeon is shot at ISO100, F5.6 and 10/300s. It was needed to be shot with a shutter speed of at least 5 times that if not 10. Therefore you should have shot at ISO400 (probably ISO800) to boost your shutter speed. I feel your chosen exposure traded detail for blur due to shutter speed, at some point though you trade detail for noise when raising ISO - so what will it be, blur or noise? I say go for noise if you can't find the happy medium - i.e. in good light.

Apologies if my lack of photographic knowledge is catching.
