SX40 and a bird in the hand
So glad you enjoyed these photos. I am getting reasonably comfortable with the SX40 which, in some ways, is more complicated to get the hang of than my old 10D and A620. Wish there was a hard copy of the manual ! I bought the camera last October during our annual visit to Palm Springs where I got some initial practise with the hummimg birds. Can't wait for our next visit and all that sunshine.
As far as PP, well I think I did a little (verylittle) sharpening in Elements6 but by and large I leave well alone.
The hand in question is that of my wife Ann who came to the rescue when one of the little guys had a crash landing on his first attempt out of the box.
Thanks again for your kind comments and best regards.
PS Without wishing to bore you here are a couple more which I think are fun.
